Process / Fabrication
Scartworks work on large scale public art projects including sculptures, street furniture & floorscapes. Our approach is site specific, responding to the environment, architecture and available space.
Ideas are frequently developed from local sources in order to give the work a sense of place. Concepts are derived from a proposed theme or from consultation with the clients.
Scartworks utilise a process of sketch development and research to initiate ideas.
Drawings and scale models are produced to develop ideas from which an appropriate form can be assessed for viability, structural suitability and cost.
The commission process follows the following steps:
• Client consultation
• Development of proposals and scheme frameworks
• Concept Visualisation & Prototype Modelling
• Detailed production design work
Scartworks provides a fabrication service for other artists & designers.
Are you looking for a company who can take your designs from the drawing board and make them real?
From initial drawings to fabrication through to transport and installation of the artwork we can offer the complete realisation & installation service. We pride ourselves on being able to faithfully translate the ideas of other design professionals, whilst maintaining the freshness of their original concept.
From an early stage we can work with you, offering practical advice and providing outline cost estimates to ensure your project is a success.
The project featured below was created for artist Alyn Mulholland in 2007. We worked closely with Alyn, creating a corten steel figurative sculpture which faithfully reproduces his initial design concept. Careful attention was given to ensuring the steel structure was correctly engineered and perfectly joined with the stone base which Alan had carved.
“I very much appreciate the advice and skills that Scartworks brought to this project and their sensitive approach to interpreting my original designs”
