Do a darn good job of it. Life is art. What are you creating?
A PAIR OF BRITISH AIRWAYS CONCORDE WATER GLASSES The perfect gift for the aviation enthusiast. Designed by Conran, exclusively for British Airways, crystalline glass made by Nachtmann (containing between 7-10% lead). This was the design by Conran for British Airways when it refurbished its branding of the interior of its Concorde Fleet. In the base of each glass is the British Airways “Speed Mark” from manufacture. The artist impression of Concorde in take-off has been laser etched to these glasses, commemorating its status in aviation history. The glasses are packed in a protected presentation box, that showcases their beauty.
Originally it was a flame can combustion chamber from a Russian Aircraft Soloviev D-30KU-154 Jet Engine but now it’s a sculpture by day and a magical light display at night. A little background…. The Soloviev D-30 is a Soviet two-shaft low-bypass turbofan engine, officially referred to as a “bypass turbojet.” Fitted to… Continue reading The Light of Kelad
My latest foray into aviation art, no less than a Concorde Engine Blade! It certainly is a spectacular piece of Rolls-Royce engineering. All the pieces that I use in aviation art have been in service. Now although it is quite spectacular as it is, as an artist, I need to add another dimension so that I… Continue reading Concorde Engine Blades
Finally complete, Flying Sculpture Table. It’s a table, it’s a sculpture….it’s functional art.
I wanted to incorporate stylised delta wings and vortices for the Concorde Flange as the picture below shows.
Image depicts Concorde landing, with condensation showing its leading-edge vortices.
From images to sketches, to cardboard templates, an idea, a design, a concept had been born. Huge thanks to my brother-in-law for somehow managing to hold the Flange and keep three, very wobbly cardboard templates together long enough for me to take this picture.
You know, it’s times like these, you wish you were an octopus!
What once began life as a Flange from a Rolls-Royce Olympus turbo jet engine 593-610 from a British Airways Concorde, would soon turn into a piece of art, with a little imagination, design work and clever fabrication.
‘Infinimbus’, is a variable vane from a Rolls-Royce Nimbus helicopter engine, transformed into infinity wall art with bronze swarf inclusions in an optically clear lucite casing. You can’t see pictures of the casing from these images but I may include them in the future, although this is dependant on owner’s permission. As with most art,… Continue reading Infinimbus Infinity Wall Art – Commissioned Art
Get the 70’s look…. ‘Electrum’ has been carefully created to give the illusion of flowing gold and silver. Layered with almost two thousand delicate pennants of textured, silvery coated foil, that gently shimmer in the air and transform into warm gold when illuminated.
