Vessel – Amphora - 2015
Hamish occasionally turns his attention to inanimate objects, exploring the fluidity of form and shape in those pieces.
His bronze sculpture Vessel - Amphora is a tall slim upright urn with an architectural quality to it. Its textured surface and the subtle gradation of tone makes it an interesting focal point in any interior or outside space. It works sympathetically in a light and airy modern interior, but equally blends well in a traditional setting.
As an outdoor sculpture, it provides contrast and textural difference to a thoughtfully planted garden, bringing an complementary ornamental quality to the natural landscape.
THIS SCULPTURE IN THE MAKING
Every so often I like to make challenge myself by making a sculpture not connected to the ‘animalier’. This Vessel was made at the same time as Inflection Point 2015 and was inspired by the antiquities, a contemporary take on an ancient relic. For this sculpture I had a profile former laser cut out of steel. I then built the plaster original up over a rotating axle.
