‘I wish only to capture the simple essence and movement of the beautiful’
explains Carl Longworth on his work. Carl is an exceptionally talented and much sort after British sculptor who is passionate about animals in nature.
Carl was originally employed as a technician in the studio of Michael James, who quickly recognised the skill and potential of Carl. He now enjoys considerable success as a sculptor working in his own studios in the Peak District.
Initially, Carl’s early interest was in the figurative form, but being in the Derbyshire countryside it is easy to understand his real passion for the birds and mammals found in nature surrounding him. Not only does he capture the unique essence of each individual animal, but he also adds long and elegant lines to further enhance the beauty of his stunning works.
After studying the subject, he initially makes models in wax or clay building up the perfect detail and character before the complicated bronze casting and distinctive patinations process takes place.
All of Carl’s works are limited editions.
