Jim Jack

“The sculptor Jim Jack will be staying with us this month. Jim combines the attention to detail of a craftsman with the enquiring mind of an artist, often working on several pieces at once, each at a different stage of their development.

Multiple layers of wood laminate or corrugated card are sawn and shaped, glued and fixed with wooden dowels; turned and manipulated, carved, ground and sanded down. Surfaces and textures add further dimensions, while the natural beauty and depth of colour of the material is brought to life with a simple finishing of wax.”
