Antony Welch North Yorkshire, United Kingdom
I'm a multidisciplinary artist working in Glass, Mixed Media Mosaic, Collage & Sculpture, which of these I chose to work on with any given piece is driven by how I feel the subject matter will be best expressed.
I would describe my artistic practice as an investigative one and an exploration into new ways of utilising materials and techniques which assists in pushing my creative skills. Once I've learned or found a new process I then work to master those techniques and materials so that my work is always of the highest standard and quality.
When i'm not producing commission or exhibition pieces I like to work on my own themes of enquiry into various subject matters.
When doing this I'll often produce small scale pieces first and then scale up once I'm happy with an overall design, this isn't a fixed process though as I still want to allow myself the flexibility during the actual production stage to make any necessary alterations which will enhance or improve the overall finished effect.
Having exhibited nationally and Internationally and with work on permanent public display. I now have a growing number of worldwide collectors op my work.
