bugged: michael turner


Michael Turner sculpts stainless steel, using polish, paint and heat effects to achieve the right finishing touches for his insects.  The beetles in the first image below are a small selection from a London department store window display – one of Turner’s many commissions .  These might be my favorite bugs yet.  Can you imagine?

  1. These are amazing! I love the detail and the lucsious finishes- what an impressive amount of work must go into each of these jewels, both cold and dazzling at the same time. Many thanks for sharing them, Nadia
