In cast aluminium and stainless steel, Ben Foster’s MOMENTUM and TWIST II are dynamic, elegant and tactile. Both pieces shimmer in the sunlight and are sensual to touch. The curves along with the kinetic movement ensure that they make an impression.
TWIST II is a glistening form, welded, polished and sealed that creates a confident and balanced form. Sitting on a plinth, this work can be rotated.
