BECCA AND BEN BOLSCHER - FLORAL FUSION

"Floral fusion" works to the brief as it represents form in space. With negative and positive attributes (laser cut sections of petals) and explores contrasting ideas, the raw and tough elements of steel from Fletcher Easysteel's stock and the delicate nature of the floral forms.

The intertwined flowers represent the collaboration of ideas between the two designers (visual artist graduate and visual effect artist). The stamen represents creativity, the piece that unites the two individuals, who work in different creative fields

2.5 metre diameter (variable)
Weight approx 200kg

Art In Structure – background
The competition was run during late 2015 for Professionals and Emerging Designers to design a steel structure that explored the connection between steel and the urban landscape.

This was a world’s first virtual design competition, whereby the 12 finalists had their designs loaded in to an augmented reality app to be displayed to the public. Judging took place in March 2016 at the Wynyard Quarter in Auckland, when the public voting chose Becca and Ben Bolscher’s “Floral Fusion” as the winner of the Emerging Designer category and Rose Petterson’s “Divine Star” as the winner of the Professional Designer category.

More information available from: artinstructure.nz

ALL proceeds from the two auctions will be donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities by Fletcher Steel.

VIEWING
The two sculptures are being exhibited at Art Industry in Clevedon (http://artindustry.co.nz) from Thursday 23rd March until Sunday 9th April. We will be on site on the three Sundays to demonstrate the augmented reality used in the early stages of the competition, but the sculptures can be viewed on any day during the auction.

Art In Structure is a bi-annual competition run by Fletcher Steel to support the use of steel by emerging and established artists in New Zealand.

Questions and answers

Hi -what are the dimensions of the work? The weight? And may be shipped how? Thanks A. k********h (315 315 positive feedback) 11:17 pm, Fri 10 Mar
Hi - dimensions and approx. weight being added to Auction today. Shipping can be arranged at cost. 6:26 am, Mon 13 Mar
How big is it please? e****e (171 171 positive feedback) 7:54 am, Sat 11 Mar
Hi - dimensions and approx. weight being added to Auction today. 6:26 am, Mon 13 Mar
Can payment be made as charitable donation with receipt provided? e****e (171 171 positive feedback) 10:19 pm, Sun 12 Mar
Hi - we can certainly provide a receipt from Ronald McDonald House Charities. I can't comment on the tax implications though. Thanks 2:30 pm, Mon 13 Mar
Thanks for your earlier answer; one more question - the last picture shows it hanging/suspended, does it have a permanent hook/eye point so could be installed as a hanging feature OR is it intended as sitting on the ground? Cheers A. k********h (315 315 positive feedback) 9:46 am, Tue 14 Mar
Hi - yes it has a permanent hook to enable it to be hung if the new owner chooses to do that. It is displayed on the ground out at Clevedon currently. Thanks 2:14 pm, Tue 14 Mar
How soon after winning must it be picked up please - and is there any help available to lift it onto a trailer? l****g (1233 1233 positive feedback) 11:02 am, Wed 15 Mar
Hi - within a couple of weeks if possible. Yes we can assist loading this piece on to a trailer easily. Thanks 11:05 am, Wed 15 Mar
Who ever made this is so talented. If i had spare money i would buy it. l********2 (352 352 positive feedback) 6:12 pm, Sun 19 Mar
Thank you! Yes - very talented designers and steel sculptor involved to make this happen! 6:24 am, Mon 20 Mar
I am wondering if the artist is the same one who did a series of iron parasols which were displayed, hanging from a tree, a few years ago at the annual (bi-annual?) sculpture exhibition at the Botanic Gardens in Manurewa. I bought one, by the way, and love it. Thank you. e***2 (127 127 positive feedback) 5:26 am, Tue 21 Mar
How does it anchor to the ground? i*******y (121 121 positive feedback) 9:20 pm, Tue 21 Mar
Hi - there is the option to pin it to the ground. Alternatively with a small amount of work a steel plate could be added to allow it to sit flat on the ground if needed. Thanks 6:29 am, Wed 22 Mar
