Nautilus is an absolutely breaktaking metal sculpture, hand-crafted from a series of fine metal ribbons that sprout and curl like curious vines off of an elegant, naturally sloping stem. The creative design and carefully balanced spacing and sizing give this piece a stunning aesthetic that manages to work in fine art settings, upscale traditional spaces, contemporary homes and even ultra-modern corporate office settings. The gentle, elegant curles of this metal sculpture captures a feminine beauty. The wispy, curling arms seem to invoke a sense of pleasant carelessness, while the more rugged chocolate brown finish and broad, sturdy base give it a sense of stability and security. This is truly a masterpiece by Nicholas Yust, who is deservedly one of the most collected metal artists and contemporary sculptors of our day.
