Sculpture, one of the most ancient art forms is a practice that is continually evolving to broaden and challenge our expectations. Sculpture as an artistic practice encourages creative freedom. Materiality is at the very core of these three-dimensions art forms, anything from metal, clay, glass, wood, fabric and even found objects can be employed in a variety of techniques, from carving and welding to sewing and assembling. The tangible and textural nature of sculpture appeals to our visual and tactile sensibilities, engaging us on multiple levels. Discover three of our talented sculptors and ceramic artists, whose work focuses on minimalism and materiality.
