We are currently featuring the bronze works of
Intending to loosen the constraints of confinement the series Unraveling is free.
Drawn in air, delineated with changing light and shadows, the golden lines of the bronze explore and project contours.
Space inside and out and around, the skeleton vessels sit on natural stages green with life.
Their purpose is to be practical and dynamic and in sync with their surroundings. Enabled by an innate strength they withstand the seasons as change is always a certainty.
Building thin organic coil like structures in clay, the bronze form is taken directly from the fired ceramic originals.
The technique is called lost wax or cire perdue, a method in which molten metal is poured into a mould that has been created around a wax model.
The wax disappears as the metal takes its place to leave the final casting.
The final patina of these sculptures is the bronze itself.
