Bronze Ancient History

Hypnia ('Sleep')

26cm high 35cm wide, patinated foundry bronze wall hanging sculpture. Suitable for indoor or outdoor spaces. 

Based on a Classical Greek bronze head of Hypnos, the God of Sleep, which was missing one wing. Mine is a feminised version, with both wings included, based on those of an Eastern Mediterranean tawny owl, and with one wing folded over the face to be more evocative of being enveloped in sleep.

Patinated to look like a marble statue just coming to life.

2nd and 3rd of a limited edition of 25 are available.

Hypnia is the first of a series of historical bronzes I have planned,

which will be added as I get them cast.

Do let me know if I have a ceramic historical piece you'd like

to see realised in bronze. It can be arranged!

Anne Lister maquette 

30cm high 20cm wide 25cm deep, in life like patinated foundry bronze. Striding womanfully across the French Pyrenees. Holding her diary in her right hand and inviting you to join her on her travels with her left.

With her most famous quote from her diaries which starts "I love and only love the fairer sex", the complete quote is written in raised lettering in both cursive script and in her own unique code she called Crypt Hand. This give the viewer a taste of reading and understanding her cypher and gives the reader half of the letters that makes up her code.

More raised lettering on the inside ring of mountains surrounding the Galcier D'Ossoue outline her life time achievements ending with the word "Mountaineer" near the crest of mount Vignemale, which she carries the title of being the first to officially climb in 1832. All the texts are in polished golden bronze which contrast with the grey granite of the mountains and the punctuation is given by the spaces between the peaks. 

Wearing her characteristic black gown and Pelisse with white neck frill, her large round pocket watch on a black ribbon, a travelling cap or Casquette, red carnelian heart shaped brooch and a very upright stance, I have endeavoured to bring Anne Lister out from 2D into as close to life as it is possible to get. Her energy and drive is displayed through the billowing of her clothing and the shapes and movement of which are reflected in the mountains around her.  

Early parts of the limited edition of 50 are available.
