Using a technique developed by Jason deCaires Taylor, the following series of maquettes have been patinated by a process of passing small electrical currents through a copper solution. Over time, copper crystals artificially grow on the surface of the works that are submerged in special tanks at the UK Studio. There are no living organisms used in the production of these works. The process of mineral accretion using copper aims to replicate the formations found on the oceanic installations and creates a level of detail that is impossible to create by human hand. Once removed from the solution, the works are stable and hot / cold patinated like traditional metal finishes. These editions are either available free standing, encapsulated in high grade lucite resin, or box framed.
