BIOGRAPHY

Andrew Lacey runs his own sculpture studio specialising in bronze casting and therefore casts his own work. Engagement with the casting process enables creative interception at any stage and leads to a lively exploration of the making of sculpture.

Andrew works internationally as a consultant in sculptural research for museums, educational institutions, and art and archaeology TV documentaries. He also teaches and runs courses in historic and contemporary sculpture techniques.
