Sculpture in the Landscape

Nick Eames Maquettes

My sculptures are inspired by found natural forms that initially attract my attention. These may be flints, sea shells, driftwood or, more recently, split kindling for the fire.

I then develop these original forms in clay or plaster as a sculpture in the round: This is a working maquette (model). When I feel the piece is resolved, I then mould and cast it into cement. These maquettes constitute a body of work that I seek to build on a suitable scale for permanent siting in the landscape.
