Malcolm Martin & Gaynor Dowling
We make sculpture in wood, from half-ton monumental forms for a secret garden, to vessels sewn together from sections of veneer weighing a few grammes. We work together on every stage of the pieces, and have been collaborating full time since 1997. What all our pieces share is the central role of the hand and of hand tools, primarily through carving.
We work on different bodies of work concurrently, so we are continuing our series of still life groupings both in monochrome and colour at the same time as making significant single pieces.
We make an increasing amount of work to commission, for both private and public clients. Please feel welcome to contact us to discuss a potential project. Some previous commissions are shown on the Commissions pages.
We are members of Contemporary Applied Arts, showing regularly with them, and have worked with Sarah Myerscough Fine Art, and with flow gallery in Notting Hill for many years.
Outdoor sculpture can normally be seen at the Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden in Surrey.
We have lived and worked together in Stroud, Gloucestershire, in England's Cotswold hills since 1997.
