Alex R.T. Davies – Sculptor

Material and Process has always been the foundation on which Alex Davies has based his work.

Using techniques that are hard to control or leaving time and natural elements to shape and form a sculpture. By doing this, Alex removes the conscious thought process behind making shape and form, making decisions on what is in front of him and the feeling it evokes.

Alex’s day job as a foundryman involves controlling and hiding a lot of the skill and processes involved in making a finished sculpture. As a result, he likes to leave the parts and flaws of the process as part of the sculptures he makes for himself.

Party Animal, Winner of 2021 Kingston Sculpture Trail is now permanently installed in Kingston Market Place

“It’s been a great experience being involved in the Kingston Sculpture Trail, made all the better by the positive feedback I have had and of course winning the vote. It is a real honour to have a sculpture chosen to be permanently sited in Kingston, a town that I have visited many times growing up in Surrey, having worked there as a teenager, to now having my own business and workshop so close.”
Alex Davies MRSS

10gram Challenge

The 10gram Challenge was my lockdown project at Milwyn. In partnership with The Royal Society of Sculptors, we invited members and additional artists to take part. The brief was to produce a small scale sculpture from a 10 gram piece of wax. The kit was supplied by post and participants sculpted their piece which was sent to us at the Milwyn foundry to be cast in bronze.
