William Brotherston RSA: My sculptures are usually fairly simple in appearance, and are based on diverse starting points. I make them simple to help me achieve resolution and clarity, and partly to exploit a kind of economy in which I hope to say more with less. In much of my work I have explored sculptural and expressive possibilities in a variety of commonplace subjects and situations including everyday objects. The sculptures are nearly all made in clay or wax, and cast as unique bronzes. I am interested in exploiting the colour potential of the metal. In my early work I tended to use flat, planar forms in space; from the 1980s I have made volumetric sculptures with continuous surfaces. Recently I have incorporated cast objects to add their unique shape properties to the final image.
