Crown Volume I
Edition Size: 100
The glossy red bronze crown titled Crown Volume I is a tongue in cheek representation of the monarchy and how “pumped up” it appears to be. On the flip side, I really had fun making something ordinary… extraordinary.
A cheap plastic inflatable crown is accessible to all; however, I have manipulated it into a bronze sculpture. I enjoy and respect the craftsmanship of bronze; it is so labor intensive with so many steps involved to realize this final glossy red bronze crown.
Each crown sits inside a custom red leather hat box which also forms part of the artwork. I appreciate the need for every single aspect of this artwork to be impeccable, as if you were the crowned prince unboxing at your own coronation.
