Nigel Wills Metal Sculptures

Born in Claremont Terrace, overlooking Falmouth Harbour, the sea has always been a huge influence on Nigel’s life but he has only in the last seven years begun to fulfil his lifelong dream of creating metal sculptures in steel and copper. Each sculpture is individually honed into shape by hand, using traditional metal forming methods and tools such as plenishing hammers, dollies and a leather sand bag. This gives each piece a different character and individuality. Although uniform no one sculpture can ever be totally replicated, such is their individuality. The sumptuous colours of each piece are also one-off effects. The steel is heat tempered, a difficult technique which involves applying focused heat to the shaped steel, which then blooms into the iridescent green blue colours. Every piece is then hand marked and sealed to preserve its integrity.
