Sculpture: A Life-long Passion!
Sculpture, and bronze sculpture in particular, is Nick’s passion, and it shows! Nick’s wonderful figurative sculptures seem almost alive, each one demonstrating his astonishing ability to capture the quintessential essence of his subject. Over 35 years experience as a professional sculptor, combined with a deep affection and understanding for each subject, a delicate aesthetic sense and exceptional artistic talent, results in stunning bronze sculptures that are both beautiful works of art and loving portraits, be they bird, animal, or human. With subjects ranging from small to monumental, Nick’s work is owned and admired by an ever growing number of people, including royalty, politicians and business leaders, diplomats, famous authors, artists, actors and musicians.Read more...
Bronze and Hallmarked Sterling Silver Sculpture, sculpted and cast in Britain
Nick believes passionately in quality and accuracy, going to exceptional lengths to research his subjects before sculpting begins. Working either from life, or in his studio in Devon, England. He does not generally make detailed working drawings, believing that, having formulated a detailed three dimensional image of the sculpture in his mind, translating that three dimensional image into two dimensional working drawings, only to then translate back into three dimensions, is introducing an unnecessary ‘Middle Man’ into the process. Once sculpting begins, the original sculpture can take anything from a few weeks to many months to complete. Nick starts by making a carefully constructed steel and aluminium armature, then building up the form in either water-based or wax modelling clay. Slowly refining and detailing the sculpture, making subtle adjustments to pose and composition as he works, until he is happy that it is ready for casting. Once the original clay or wax sculpture is finished, Nick works closely with Pangolin Editions foundry, in Chalford, Gloucestershire, to mould and cast the finished bronze, or silver sculpture. All Nick’s sculptures are hand cast by Pangolin Editions, who are rightly famous for their skill, attention to detail, exceptional quality, stunning patinas and finish.
Sculpture Commissions and Limited Editions
Nick is always happy to discuss commissioning a bronze or silver sculpture and produces most of his sculptures in strictly limited editions of between 3 and 25 pieces, depending on subject, though unique, one-offs are also possible. Commissions to date range from the beautiful little Bedlington/Whippet Lurcher, “Grace“, commissioned by her owner, to the towering, 15 foot, Kodiak Brown Bear, “Indomitable“, commissioned by the prestigious Ivy League University, Brown, in Providence, Rhode Island.
