About THE SCULPTOR

Rob Leighton

Rob creates both figurative sculpture (from life and imagination) as well as more abstract sculptures. Abstract work can be a response to an idea, memories and reminiscence of natural and man-made forms, or simply forms found within the irregular block being carved at the time. In the latter case, the forms are arrived at intuitively, crystallising as the work progresses. Rob uses a range of media: Figurative work is usually cast after being modelled in clay, whilst more abstract sculptures are most often carved prior to being coated and moulded. These can be cast as editions in a range of materials. The works are patinated in a variety of finishes in order to enhance the forms and to clients specifications.

SCULPTURES EXHIBITING

Large Pod


This sculpture is an enlargement of a smaller model made in Jesmonite inspired by seed pods. Its form was conceived in order to present a multitude of 360 degree visual profiles. The model was enlarged creating a large sculpture that could be transported and installed at sculpture exhibitions UK wide. The materials employed are weather proof, robust but relatively light weight.

 PRICE: £4,500
