Vitulus

POA

The elegant balletic movement of a seal (vitulus in Latin), darting through the waves was the initial spark for this sculptural floating shelf. I was looking to make a piece that married functionality with aesthetics in even amounts and captured both the playful agility of the seal with a reference to its marine environment. Vitulus is pictured here in Maple with turquoise and magenta painted sections. It uses laminated solid wood to create the overall form and Maple works particularly well as it its pale hue accentuates the paint colour. Other woods can be used with this design and the painted sections can also be customised to any colour on request, whilst the length can also be tailored up to 1500mm. When displaying ornaments this sculptrural floating shelf can be seen as functional art, however it can left in its simplest form as a wall mountd sculpture. It comes with adjustable concealed fittings; please specify whether you require fittings for a brick or plasterboard wall.
