Andrew Kay’s NEW ‘Iberian Bull’ is hand forged in Cumbria from solid steel bar – £7,500 inc VAT and free delivery to UK mainland

Cumbrian sculptor Andrew Kay has added a powerful new design to his original wildlife sculptures – a 2.1 metre tall by 2.6 metre long Iberian Bull, hand forged from 3 inch x ½ inch solid steel bar. The piece is a new addition to his commanding and dramatic sculpture designs which are often used as site-specific pieces by large estates and commercial organisations. Previous clients include Daniel Thwaites PLC, Ballindalloch, Yorkminster Cathedral the Chetzeron hotel in Switzerland and the RSPB…among others.

About the new design, Andrew Kay said; “I have always been fascinated with bulls, and slightly intimidated by the challenge to try and capture their incredible presence and powerful anatomy. My sculptures are a little abstract and minimalist. The aim is to try and suggest the animal’s form using architectural lines and curves. I try to capture a frozen flexed hock or a bent neck straining to look at you. My sculptures have to communicate, in a moment, the essence of the beast and if they don’t do this, I have failed.”

Andrew Kay Sculpture was founded by sculptor Andrew Kay in 1993 to make original, handmade, stunningly beautiful wildlife sculptures from solid mild steel – freezing them in a moment of time. Striking silhouettes on the landscape, Andrew Kay’s sculptures masterfully capture the very essence of some of our most beautiful and elegant animals, using clean and deceptively simple lines of steel. The artistry of the sculptures is in their ability to instantly communicate the character, powerful anatomy and movements of our favourite wildlife through carefully placed, architectural curves and lines. The sculptures also transform and evolve over time, the grey natural mild steel from which they are created, developing into a rich ochre colour. Due to the thickness of the sculptures, they will last on the landscape for many decades.

Andrew creates his sculptures alongside his wife Anneley and Inky the Labrador in Beckside Studio, a converted barn set in the wild hills of his native Cumbria. Each Andrew Kay Sculpture is unique and original, handmade to order following discussions with the client. Completely new and bespoke commissions are also available. Delivery is available both within the UK and abroad and is expertly organised direct to the clients’ preferred site.
