Short Film on Bryan Nash Gill

I’d like to turn our collective attention now to an American sculptor who has altered his medium of creativity and found heart in the art of printmaking, not through illustrations of his own but that of the natural world with an ongoing series of woodcuts from a great diversity of tree species. The individual I’m referring to is Connecticut born and based Bryan Nash Gill who’s works document the life and growth of one of the worlds oldest living …

Series of Sculptures by Pamela Sunday

At the turn of the year I thought I’d come through with a selection of sculptures to compliment our recent interview with American artist Patrick Dougherty. I’ve strayed away from wood however and put together a series of imagery from another American creative, the lady in question being Pamela Sunday who works in the medium of clay.

This series in fact made up an …

He also happens to be one of the most respected and talented Origami artists in the world, so upon enjoying his portfolio earlier today I did …

Collection of work from Derek Weidman

In recent months I’ve become really fascinated by the art of wood turning and the beautiful forms that you can create. In fact I would have featured more work here from this medium but for one frustrating problem, the most accomplished turners that I’ve come across have been homing their craft for twenty years plus, which means they’re a little out of the loop when it comes to presenting their work online. Therefore most imagery is either poorly …
