Earlier this year we were lucky enough to meet a former engineer turned sculptor, John Elwell, who has turned his mad skills and passion for everything with an engine, to creating amazing large scale sculptural models out of aluminium. John’s work is normally only available through the Pullman Gallery so we are honoured that he has agreed to work with us to create a show stopping piece of unique artwork for the workshop.
To say we are excited would be an understatement! and our first trip to John’s workshop turned into a lengthy visit as we drooled over photo’s of his previous work and the huuuge scale model currently under construction in the centre of the room.
John first creates blueprint drawings for each piece and then hand forms the aluminium panels which are riveted over a steel space frame.
I can’t believe how FRICKIN AMAZING this thing looks and can’t wait to see the end result! We are very grateful to John who is just crazy talented and also happens to be a thoroughly lovely bloke 🙂
