About this work

The energy and elegance of a leaping Scottish river salmon is expressed powerfully through the distinctive steel coils of Aegirs sculptural style. Individual features are picked out with remarkable finesse while blending with the dynamic lines that create this graceful artwork. A further connection to the living animal is delivered through the sculptures display on stone from the banks of the river Tweed in Scotland. 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.

Aegir Maciver is a sculptor based in the borders of Scotland, where he handcrafts unique contemporary sculptures inspired by the wildlife and forms of his native country.

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.
