Stainless steel sculptures last decades, making this the perfect material for creating a lasting memory. A wide variety of surface finishes are available, which give stainless its stunning appearance.
Commemorating all those who have served in the RAF and in Commonwealth air forces, a magnificent stainless steel eagle made of around 1,600 specially hand-forged feathers was erected at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire. Electropolishing was used to improve both the appearance and long term corrosion resistance.
Also, a stainless steel sculpture unveiled at Windsor to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee consists of a beautifully bent spiral decorated with 60 mirror polished circles. Each circle represents a year of the Queen’s reign.
