Blog #7 – Sculpture
The beauty and balance of the objects that we make originates from the skill of our artisans. Their talents have been refined over decades, creating exquisite pieces and the most delicate and balanced forms. Techniques employed include gilding with precious metals to enliven the surface and animate a live edge or carving by hand.
Sculptural carving to surfaces is used to reach a specific and desired aesthetic result, often this may take place over weeks and involve two or three artisans. The intimate hand and eye process aims to deliver our precise intent for the work and yet in some pieces it may evolve in unexpected ways, this is due to the very nature of the materials.
Evolution of the work will continue throughout its life influenced by interaction from both human touch and the elements themselves.
