Richard Mason

I trained in fine art sculpture and after careers in teaching and running an art gallery I have recently begun to make again. My mobile sculptures explore themes of balance and lightness. I am particularly  interested in forms that fill a space, but with little volume, and that have a spare, restrained aesthetic. I use found materials, wood and metal to construct sculptures that move with efficiency and simplicity.

I use tropical woods, such as ebony, rosewood and wenge, which have been ethically sourced. These woods have a natural beauty, dense tones and patterns which work well with the simple shapes I am currently exploring.

I also use wire, primarily brass, which I form into extended chains and linked forms which move freely, catching the light on the planished surfaces.
