Chris Crane

The Carmarthenshire based sculptor Chris Crane takes much of his inspiration from British wildlife. This is where the idea for a piece of artwork can often start: an encounter with a hare, momentarily frozen before it flies across a clearing into the safety of the dunes; coming across a stag, which silently vanishes into the backdrop of the forest; or watching the dynamic grace of a falcon as it chases pigeons from the sea cliffs, or the entwined play of otters as they weave through lily ponds.

He first captures images in charcoal or ink, before he starts developing the artistic process before creating forms by arranging and merging pieces of steel
