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.
