About This Piece

A solid bronze vessel form with individuaslly hand-pierced walls oxidised in tones of blue with a bright polished rim.

Artist Statement

Challenging the opinion that bronze is simply a reproductive material I employ the sand-casting process to create vessel forms and table sculptures that engage the qualities of bronze as a noble material in its own right. I cut, carve, grind or weld the cast bronze to create unique forms before polishing defining edges and oxidising to produce the exquisite surface finishes that have always been an essential feature of my work. I am drawn towards simple, tactile objects that seem to naturally exist but am also inspired by the complexity of line, curve and form inherent in events of the natural world. What is actually in my head when I make the work is deeply personal but it also matters that the work engages the imagination of the viewer and connects to a deep-rooted, instinctive appreciation of simple, universal forms.
