Derek Anderson Tyne and Wear, United Kingdom
  Back to profiles

A trained silversmith, Derek Anderson has spent the past 30 years developing his affinity with metal and now creates a range of sculptures using aluminium, brass, copper, steel and silver.

After many years working with metal, Derek expanded his expertise by learning the skills of a blacksmith in order to be able to create the specialist tools required for his art work. By employing the art of direct sculpting, he hammers directly into sheet metal combining fire and passion to create his unique sculptural pieces. From small floral items to larger botanical and animal sculptures, his work is mainly inspired by natural forms, although a small number are of a more abstract nature. Whilst some pieces follow a theme, because every item is individually created with hammers, each is unique in its own right.
