Bronze with Gold leaf and Enamel
The Artist - Matthew Holland
I am a designer, sculptor, jewellery maker and managing director at eminent medallist company, Bigbury Mint, who make high-quality medals for prestigious organisations and individuals. Iím currently interested in designs that have a relevance for current lifestyles. This wall-plaque was inspired by a photograph of a Graeco-Roman chased and repousséd gold sheet displayed in Cairo Museum. I have taken the basic design and changed the central face to a modern one wearing sunglasses. Iíve added medusa-like hair as a twist to modern statement hairstyles. The wall-plaque is cast in bronze, gold-leaf finished and hard resin enamelled.
