This is a contemporary sculpture combining Celtic/Pictish rock-art with metalwork. It is based on a stone carved Celtic Cross slab that is on display at Old Govan Parish Church, Glasgow. This Celtic Cross was carved around the 10th century but over the centuries, the lower half has been broken off and lost. I have created my miniature with a couple of changes to how the original looked. Principally, I have taken the cross element of the sculpture and re-presented it as a copper metal inlay to represent a "metal & Stone" sculpture.
This metal inlay is hand-polished cold cast copper.
Indoors Wall Hanging. This piece comes ready with a hanging hole on the rear to enable it to be hung flush to a suitable wall from a pin-nail.
HOW THIS MINIATURE WAS CREATED
After many hours researching a subject, I travel the country to measure, sketch and photograph it. This information is brought to my workshop where I set about producing a detailed scale drawing. Once this is completed I use the drawing alongside the photographs to enable me to carve and sculpt the subject in miniature. This whole process takes many hours, often running into the hundreds. At the end the miniature sculpture becomes the master model with which I make the molds. Each resin casting I make from the molds is an exact reproduction of my original sculpture. I then spend a great deal of time with each and every casting to prepare and paint it using a variety of spray and brush techniques to create a realistic representation of the original, ancient subject. Every stage of this piece you see here is crafted entirely by hand.
