Aegir uses his highly individual style to represent the wonderfully playful character of Scotlands beloved Otter. The spiraling steel of the sculpture creates a finely detailed, almost animate, depiction that captures the imagination and the heart. Aegirs sculptures are individually handcrafted using his own sculptural metalworking process to create a unique artwork with every piece he produces and offers this work in a choice of finishes: Antique Silver, Old Gold, Hammered bronze. The display base for this sculpture is a stone from the banks of the beautiful St Marys Loch, Scotland.
The ‘longest apprenticeship in art history’ began with his work in his families art foundry where his immersion in the sculptural form and the craft of metal work began. His understanding and skill would be honed in metal workshops and foundries across the UK and beyond.
Aegir’s individual style and vision have been forged through his many years of art fabrication for famed contemporary artists, amongst those who have entrusted Aegir to realize their vision are Turner prize nominated David Mach and Christine Borland.
Working closely on projects with sculptors as diverse as Andy Scott and Sandy Stoddart has afforded Aegir a privileged artist education, learning the techniques and informing the perspective that allows him to produce his highly individual artwork.
