The sculpture takes its name from the Ted Hughes poem Horses and the description of the horses seen through the early morning mist as they stand within a copse.
Sculptor, founder and experimental archaeo-metallurgist Andrew works out of his South Devon studio with his partner Siân Lewis and his brother Robin, and delves into the historical rigour of his work, inspiring Renaissance methodology and sustainable practice. All the bronze he uses in the workshop is recycled from copper wire and industrial waste, and naturally occurring acids and oils replace chemicals.
Andrew’s renown is much-sought-after, he’s part of a visiting lecturer programme at Cambridge University and UCL and he’s involved with the Venetian Renaissance Bronzes Project.
The exhibition at the Dartington’s Cider Press features the equestrian bronze and glass sculpture with paintings and supporting working drawings.
