About

A very late beginner !

Hello I'm Gilly and welcome to my About Page

What I would like to do is give you more details of how the different pieces are made and the thinking/creating behind them.

Firstly I want my sculpture to be touched - that it how it is made - constant touching, shaping and smoothing the form. This may take several weeks as you have to leave it and consider the shape from every angle and light,- changing a curve - sharpening an angle. This can go on for months! Eventually you have to say to yourself Enough! and be content when I feel it is right.. Nearly all of my pieces are cast - which means I make a HMV (hot melt vinyl) mold around the positive original and when that is cool I cast a new individual piece in wax if it is going to the bronze foundry (lost wax method) or Cassini which is a wonderfully hard weatherproof sculpture composite.

As each piece is cast individually the patination on the bronze is always unique and if I cast in Cassini I am able to work/carve, patinate and smothe the sculpture for about 48 hours, making each sculpture truly unique.

I have to say I do love my work and have a studio/workshop next to my home and have turned a spare stable into a Gallery (there's posh) and of course I keep creating and filling my little Gallery with bronzes and smaller pieces and exhibiting locally and in Dublin.

Came to sculpture rather late in life and am thoroughly enjoying it! Wasn't allowed to go to Art school in the late 60's so I eventually took myself back to college aged 50 - go and sign up as a Mature Student it's great.

Thanks for reading this far x good wishes x Gilly x

    Sculpture is my first love. I so enjoy playing with clay - building shapes - looking at the line as I move around a 3D piece. But don't be surprised when your beautiful purchase arrives in completely recycled packaging.
