PERRYN BUTLER

I am a direct carver, influenced by the Bluestone and the history of Pembrokeshire. Each bronze sculpture is sand cast from the original carving into solid bronze. The creative process continues through fettling and patination which in itself is like alchemy. No two turn out the same. This is a highly intuitive process, the colour depends upon how much heat and how damp the weather is and knowing when to stop.

 

These assemblages are the result of orchestrating different components, and pieces, I have created out of natural materials such as wood slate, stone, metal and leather, with object trouve. Each piece is cut, carved, sanded, dyed, textured or patinated. Using a limited palette of carefully chosen colours, I arrange the juxtaposition of shape, and textures Intuitively, into these contemporary panels.
