Striking and highly original pieces have been created by sculptor Matt Buckley and made in the United Kingdom.
Although contemporary in style each design is created by hand in the traditional manner using clay.
A pencil drawing is used as a starting point but then intuition and the artist’s eye take over and the design is worked and reworked until the final result emerges.
A mould is carefully created for each design, then Into the mould a special marble resin is poured which hardens to produce the basic sculpture.
Each piece is then worked on by hand to clean and prepare for final finishing which includes sand blasting and hand painting.
Due to the handmade nature of this sculpture, no two pieces are the same making each piece unique.
