Damon Price

Damon is a contemporary figurative sculptor, with a passion for conveying energy, tension and movement in his pieces.

Human forms and wildlife feature heavily in his work, and he aims to capture the spirit and essence of each subject he sculpts, employing both clay and the lost wax method.        
Damon is self-taught, including researching and building a small-scale foundry for his work.
He sees through his entire creative process from start to finish by not only sculpting, but then moulding, casting, and finally patinating and finishing the pieces himself.
Damon sculpts in both wax and clay.
Both the mediums have different properties, consistencies and textures, and this affects the resulting work.
 His wax pieces make the most of the ‘lost wax’ method, creating one-off sculptures with unique and beautiful surface characteristics. To make it workable, wax must be carefully heated within a certain temperature range. Varying the temperature allows it to change from pliable and plastic—for creating structure—to fully liquid—allowing more coincidental mark-making and the addition of texture.
​Working in clay has a different ‘feel’. Its soft pliability allows a more immediate, expressive way of working, from the hands directly into the material, allowing more spontaneous creation.
