Statement by artist Stephen Glassborow on his sculpture Air Chair:
There are different approaches to making sculpture.
Fabrication , Carving , or Modelling.
My choice is modelling in clay. It is soft, pliable , and easy to adjust.
When I am working on a new sculpture , my ideas tend to be loose in concept.
Clay gives me the freedom to change things if I wish. One of the beauty’s about bronze ,is its strength.
It is capable of creating an illusion of weightlessness. As in Air Chair, I have used this technique to draw the viewer into the detail.
I like the contrast between the details of the figure, and the apparent chaos of the cubes.
