Hand sculpted by Martin Huxford, the Minos wall sconce celebrates the beauty of artisanal values, textural warmth and unique design.
The Minos plaster white wall sconce is an exciting mix of neo-classical and contemporary art influences, from ancient Greek myth to Picasso's use of the bull as cultural metaphor. Martin's abstract vision of this enduring classical myth brings a simple power and depth to his hand sculpted design.
In a grand visual statement, the exaggerated sweep of the Minos sconce suggests the abstract outline of horns, richly textured with hand shaped details.
The generous sculptural curves are given heightened definition by the decorative row of hand etched lines which mark the outer edge of the arms.
Minos is a new addition to Martin Huxford's sculptural collection, hand made to order at our Sussex Studio.
