Bronze freely rotating on a Cumbrian slate base, stamped with monogram signature and uniquely numbered 616B. Series of individual variations. Rotating the sculpture allows the spectator to set a wide range of views. The natural bronze part is finely rubbed and lacquered which is long-lasting as long as handled carefully.                                                                                                                  

Philip Hearsey is a self-taught sculptor and specialized in sand-casting to make pieces which engage the quality of bronze as a noble material in its own right. Hearsey lives and works on the Welsh borders of Herefordshire - a beautiful place, still remote and largely unaltered, landlocked and very slow in change.

1946 , United Kingdom

Philip Hearsey is a British sculptor born in 1946 who lives and works in Longtown, Herefordshire, UK. Philip has exhibited his work throughout the UK. He specializes in sand casting to make sculptures that engage the quality of bronze as a noble material in its own right. Casting in sand moulds is a simple and ancient method far removed from the sophisticated lost wax operation used by most art foundries. The sand casting process is relentless and unforgiving – the foundry is no place for a delicate original. It denies a complexity of form that imposes a disciplinary and enriching simplicity. Color is achieved in many ways. The most common and widely used method is to oxidize or patinate the bronze by employing the same chemical reaction that occurs in nature, but using a combination of mild heat and stronger solutions to achieve a faster result. Patination can be enhanced by the application of a transparent colorwash that maintains the inimitable variegated effects that are possible with oxidization, whilst producing a more vivid finish. The most usual colorwash is acrylic, but oil-bound washes or colored waxes are sometimes used. Coloring can also be achieved by painting alone and often this technique is utilized on part of a sculpture in combination with patination. Painting allows a greater range of colors than patination alone. All coloring is finished and protected by a marine grade lacquer and/or wax.
