The natural bronze edge is finely rubbed for protection and to prevent natural darkening if air reaches the bronze. The bronze will only be protected if the lacquer coating remains intact and care should be taken in handling.
The internal surface is highly textured with random fluting which shows in the sharp undulations of the rim.
Philip Hearsey creates beautiful objects that ease into a space between pure form and purpose. The solid bronze vessel forms are cast in sand and are hand finished by polishing and patinating to produce a variety of surface colours and finishes.Philip lives and works on the Welsh borders of Herefordshire – a beautiful place, still remote and largely unaltered, landlocked and very slow in change. This is in sharp contrast to the coast that he also loves where everything changes twice a day with the rise and fall of every tide.
“What is in my head when I create the work is deeply personal but it matters equally that the sculptures engage others to connect with the deep-rooted and instinctive appreciation of simple, universal forms that underpin my inspiration.”
With a background in architecture, interior and furniture design he is a self-taught sculptor and specialises in sandcasting to make pieces which engage the quality of bronze as a noble material in its own right. Sculptures are intimate in scale and intended for the interiors of home, office or hotel.
