Process

Andrew works from a studio-foundry located in an old threshing barn in the heart of rural Devon, UK, where he single-handedly casts his own work in bronze. The process involves development through exploratory maquettes which are rapidly assembled using plaster, hay, hessian and raw materials found in or around the studio, allowing Andrew to explore his chosen form intuitively. From here, moulds are created to capture the detail of each form and large-scale sculptures are cast in sections; pouring molten bronze from a crucible on site, taking the process right back to it’s ancient roots. For more of an insight into this fascinating process, see the stages below, as described by the artist in his own words:
