Robert Hulme

Posted by on Oct 19, 2012 in Artists

  A self-taught sculptor, Robert works in stone and steel, creating abstract forms mainly based on the human figure. His work has been described as evoking subtle images of human emotions and states of mind. He attempts to transmit an ‘inner truth’ while conceiving an overall unity of form, and retaining the essential values of sculpture – the sense of mass and volume, and the relationships between hollows, curves, planes and outline. He started carving in wood during the 1980’s, and now produces work in stone, steel and cast bronze. Pieces range from small bronze maquettes...

I come originally form Edinburgh and now live in Dorset. The focus of my work is figurative sculpture. I love the challenge of capturing some of the vitality and expression of the living form. The subjects of my work include the female form, dancers and children at play. The flamenco sculptures were inspired by a famouse flamenco dancer on tour in the UK, a fascinating combination of flowing fabric and strong body movement. We live by the sea and so the summer months are full of inspiration for sculptures of children playing on the beach. I work my original sculptures in either wax or clay,...

1991-1994 BA(hons) 3D Design – Ceramics (2.1) West Surrey College of Art and Design, Farnham My current focus is on figurative pieces which are usually of a quirky or whimsical nature. I like to suggest a loose narrative, the theme of which may stem from personal feelings or observations, but which offers the viewer the opportunity to place their own interpretation on the work. All pieces are unique and are hand built using a stoneware clay and are decorated with a variety of glaze, oxides and underglaze colours, sometimes with the addition of wire and beads. Jean lives in Guildford, Surrey...

I am a stone sculptor. I make unique sculpture and exhibit on a regular basis. Most pieces are inspired by nature or the human condition (mother and child, family groups etc). I run small informal carving groups for adults in my workshop on a weekly basis. I can take on commissions for garden pieces and have even been known to carve sculpture in memory of loved ones for churchyards. I use local stone mainly from the Westcountry. I am also a member of the South West Sculptors. Workshops in schools have been very successful. Usually the children use breeze blocks as they are soft so nice and...
