Southern White Rhino
Fred is an award wining sculptor who is passionate about wildlife and the natural world.
His work focuses around the movement, character and behaviours of animals in their natural habitats.
Having had the privilege of travelling around the world and observing and sculpting wildlife first hand, he has gained an insight into their instinctive nature which is vital when attempting to capture a moment in wax.
He sculpts predominantly using heated sheets of wax which allows him a spontaneity when creating the form and expressing the movement of his subject whilst at the same time allowing for intricate detail when the wax has cooled.
The piece is taken to the foundry where the Last Wax Technique is employed to create a bronze sculpture. He is so fascinated by the process that for several years he has worked part time in a foundry of some sort to better learn his trade.
