About ‘Light and Shade’ – Steel and Glass sculpture by Ian Marlow
A member of the Royal Society of Sculptors, Ian Marlow is a Somerset-based sculptor best known for his bold and dynamic sculptures in stainless steel and glass.
The shimmering steel adapts to the changing light, creating a fluidity of form that sees his sculptures interact with their surroundings, making them equally at home in traditional gardens or as bold statements within contemporary architectural settings; Ian’s sculptures are deserving of their national celebration.
One of the appeals of stainless steel is that it naturally reflects light and the colours around it.
Ian’s sculptures sparkle with light and ever-changing shades and shadows that the changing day and seasons offer. By introducing colour to his sculptures with glass or powder-coating, he enhances this aspect, creating a vibrancy that adds to the visual enjoyment of his work.
