Hybrid Power metal & oak sculpture
This unique metal and oak engine sculpture has been designed by Luke to celebrate engine design, commissioned by Sportscarhire of Shrewsbury.
A real V8 engine forms the basis of the work, Luke decided on a hybrid theme which brings beautiful organic oak together with machined steel. The metal parts and hoses from a variety of sources are re-worked and melded with carefully selected root-oak pieces, built up to mirror the structure of an engine with both supercharger and turbochargers for extreme power, and create a unique sculpture with flowing forms. The thick toughened glass of the table was specially commissioned with a central hole so the engine comes up through it rather than being in two pieces.
Extensive details can be seen all around the piece, with hoses and fittings nestling everywhere among the warm varnished oak.
