My Portfolio: I am a sculptor and artist. I studied Fine Art at Mandela Metropolitan University. I worked as a fettler and an artisan at a bronze foundry for a couple of years. I was a teacher of sculpture at Somerset College for four and a half years and also lectured space and volume at Stellenbosch University for a short period. I did teach sculpture privately. I have a public studio/gallery in Stellenbosch South Africa. I do private and corporate commissions on sculptural portraiture, animal and bird sculptures. Sculptures are made in wax, plasticine or plaster before I have them cast in bronze. I am currently represented by the George Thornton Art Gallery in the UK, Nottingham, where I have sculptures on Exhibition. Locally in South Africa I have a few bronze sculptures at the Posthouse Gallery as well as an extensive collection of bronze sculptures at my Studio Gallery, 44 Church Street Stellenbosch South Africa. I do illustrative pen and ink drawings and the occasional lithograph. My other website is www.stephenrautenbach.co.za and www.stephenrautenbach.com

    Love your WorkSTUKKEND man …. impressive… can see you know you game…. inside out… So ballpark 3 bronze roses… or arrangement of 3 showing the contrast between
    1. the “soft side” – the more commercialized fairy tale version of the rose
    2. the ‘dark side’ the thorns, the pain, the blood,
    3. the fusion of the 2 both soft and dark balancing out… the real life, beautifully painfull version we can all associate with and even secretly desire.

    My thoughts were that it should perhaps be a small piece , perhaps 3 seperate Hair Pens -ie.Chinese or japanese style.and just to throw in a curved ball i want to fit in a fiber optic array to illuminate / accenting features………….
