“Sempre Avanti” Aluminum Sculpture
Ferrari GTO Automotive Sculpture
“Sempre Avanti” is a Ferrari GTO automotive sculpture made to 1/4 scale. This unique, “one off” sculpture is an homage to the legendary Ferrari 250 GTO. As with my other sculptures, I tried to create an electrifying expression of emotion and movement through the use of flowing ribbons of aluminum. For this automotive sculpture I focused on a more geometric oak buck as a contrast the flowing surfaces of the Ferrari.
All of my automotive sculptures are hand-crafted with the same revered metal working techniques and tools of the legendary coach builders such as Scaglietti, Vignale, and Figoni & Falaschi. Every automotive sculpture I create is a bespoke, “one-off” hand-formed aluminum expression of the essence of the automobile. My automotive sculptures often feature legendary icons such as Ferrari, Talbot Lago, Delahaye and Bugatti but I am always eager to approach different marques.
Please enjoy the following build gallery of my Ferrari 250 GTO automotive sculpture. Entitled “Sempre Avanti”, the Ferrari 250 GTO is a perennial favorite with all enthusiasts with a heartbeat. I tried to capture the elegant, aggressive forms of this classic in my sculpture. These images offer a behind the scenes glimpse into the process involved to create one of my 1/4 scale hand-formed aluminum automotive sculptures.
All of my sculptures are made using the same techniques and tools as the original Carrozzerias. Each automotive sculpture is painstakingly crafted from hand-formed .050 aluminum shaped over a wooden buck. It is an elegant time honored craft that yields the same hammer marks and patina as the original cars.
A truly unique, one-off automotive sculpture that will not be found anywhere else in the world. These bespoke automotive sculptures are created specifically for you and you alone. I personally guarantee they will never be reproduced or duplicated in any way shape, or form. Perfect for the most discerning collector.
