About Philip Hearsey
PHILIP HEARSEY. SCULPTOR. BORN 1946 Philip Hearsey lives and works in Herefordshire on the very edge of England where it is interwoven and blurred with the Welsh borders. Although trained formally at Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts in the 1960’s most of his working life was spent in architecture, interiors and furniture design. With years of experience he now spends his time creating sculpture specializing in the use of sand-cast foundry bronze to make work that engages the qualities of bronze as a noble material in its own right. Bronze is eternal - yet malleable. He loves the stuff. The depth of colour is sublimely beautiful yet the surface is endlessly receptive to the transformative effects of oxidisation and other treatments. Sculptures are domestic in scale and intended for the interiors of homes, offices, yachts, restaurants and hotels. They are held in private and corporate collections across the globe.
