Mike Bigland

I studied sculpture with David Howorth in Bridgnorth, Shropshire, for over 2 years, after retiring from a 32-year career in engineering design and manufacture. I have studied wax modelling and also moulding and casting at West Dean College.
 
Initially my sculptures focused on the ethnic variation in both portrait and form working in clay, wax and plaster.  I manufacture my own moulds and cast pieces in plaster, cement fondue and terracotta. I have work cast in bronze or other metals by a specialist foundry.
 
My latest work is in stainless steel and explores the essential elements of plant forms.

All this work is of a welded construction and is designed for external display within the garden environment, or as indoor arrangements. I am also working on some new individual flower forms for display in May 2010.

Additionally I am studying  jewellery design and manufacture at the Birmingham School of Jewellery. I am focusing on silver pieces predominantly with an Arts & Crafts theme.

Working across these disciplines and incorporating engineering is very stimulating and encourages cross-fertilization of ideas.
