Episode 9 of 9


When it comes to creating a thing of beauty, it requires more than just simple thought. Sculptor Philip Hearsey explains to Stephen Penn how he uses the power of nature and his own instinct to create his unique style of art.

With a background in architecture, interior and furniture design of more than 30 years, Hearsey is a self-taught sculptor who specializes in sandcasting to create pieces which engage the quality of bronze as a noble material in its own right. His sculptures are intimate in scale and intended for the interiors of homes, offices or hotels. Hearsey cuts, carves, grinds or welds the cast bronze to create unique forms before invariably exposing the natural bronze or oxidizing to produce the unique surface finishes that have always been an essential dimension of his work.

Enclosed is an illustrated interview to portray a sculptor of great talent.
