Region:Monmouthshire City:Abergavenny
Size: Weight: kgs
Price:N/A (EUR)


Forged steel on Portland stone panel.
Please contact us for more information and prices.

Simon's current work follows three directions - sculpture for site-specific commissions, the head and portrait, and work that originates through the consideration of particular pieces of music. He models in clay for casting into metal, stone for carving, and steel for forging. In his Piano Music Series, the emphasis is on drawing within the real time of the music, creating a calligraphic form that results in forged steel and stone sculptures.

Simon has taught in many schools, colleges and community venues and runs regular sculpture workshops in portrait modelling, stone carving and life drawing. These take place both in London and from his barn near Abergavenny in the Brecon Beacons National Park in Monmouthshire, Wales.

Simon was educated through a traditional 4-year apprenticeship with the sculptors Edwin Russell, Lorne McKean and Bernard Saunders, followed by an honours degree in Sculpture at Central St Martin's School of Art and Design.

He has work in both private and public collections in the UK, Europe and North America, and has worked extensively as a sculptor in film, television and theatre.

Course Sculpting the Head
"This is my second visit to Simon and Anna (previously stone) and I cannot commend or recommend these courses highly enough. The whole process was hugely, monstrously enjoyable - a total immersive creative experience. This comes with, if you haven't done the course or this work before, a surprising excitement and adrenaline 'buzz' as you develop your work. Simon tutors you through the sculpting challenge with a style subtly tailored to your needs at that time, and the whole course is relaxed, friendly and great fun. His style is directional when required but observational and supportive to allow you the necessary time to learn from your close observation of the subject and your inevitable need to refine your work. All this is married to a location which is beautiful, relaxed and inspiring, and Anna's superb food and generous hospitality. Finally, and I think this is very, very valuable - you leave the course with an indelible imprint of Simon's enthusiasm and real encouragement to continue practising and developing when you return home".
