More Hearsey


Sandcasting is a rather interesting technique that engages with the natural qualities of the bronze as a material in a number of ways. Beginning by placing the pattern for the sculpture into a box and packing the surrounding area with sand, molten bronze is then poured into the mould, taking the form of the pattern and creating the sculpture.

Due to the traditional nature of this method some beautiful irregularities appear on Philip Hearsey’s sculptures, pinholes in the bronze and deformations which add their unique character to the art piece as a whole.

Here are the latest additions to our collection on display at The Gallery Melrose.
