About

Fred Gordon is an award-winning sculptor passionate about wildlife and the natural world. His work focuses around the movement, character and behaviours of animals in their natural habitats. Having had the privilege of travelling around the world and observing and sculpting wildlife first hand, Fred has gained an insight into their instinctive nature that is vital when attempting to capture a moment in wax. He sculpts, predominantly, using heated sheets of wax which allows him a spontaneity when creating the form and expressing the movement of his subject whilst, at the same time, allowing for intricate detail when the wax has cooled.
Once the wax master has been sculpted, the piece is taken to the foundry where the Lost Wax Technique is employed to create a bronze sculpture. Fred is fascinated by this process, due primarily to the level of care and detail required to mould, cast and finish a piece in bronze, and, for that reason, he has worked part time for several years in a foundry of some sort to better learn his trade.

Commissions

Fred readily accepts private bronze commissions. In the first instance, the subject of the commission, the medium, the size of the sculpture, your budget and time frame must be discussed. This may be done with the help of photographs of the subject or through first hand observation. Once decided upon, Fred will begin sculpting the piece and provide step by step photographs of its progression to allow for adjustments along the way. Prior to being sent off to the foundry for casting you will be shown the piece again for final approval. The moulding and casting process at the foundry takes about 3 to 4 months.
