Born in 1956, Chris studied at Redruth School of Art, Cornwall. He gained further experience in the techniques of bronze and sculpture by working in several foundries; which gave him a thorough knowledge of casting techniques.
He says of his approach ‘Most of the work I produce is pure abstract and cast in bronze. I can generally visualise the finished piece the moment I start working with what will eventually become the pattern. For me the evolution of a piece is an organic process. There is no planning or drawing. Rarely am I aware of what the trigger for an idea was; perhaps something glimpsed somewhere or a long forgotten find. I surround myself with found objects; the studio is full of treasures of all kinds, everything from cuttlefish to scrap metal.
Chris has been commissioned by a number of International British companies. He is a Member of the Penwith Society of Arts that was founded by Barbara Hepworth and Ben Nicholson.
