Michael Blow

Initially inspired by the stone carvings of the Shona sculptors of Zimbabwe Michael Blow trained as a stone mason at Gloucester Cathedral in an effort to master a medium and accidentally had a 22 year career as a stone mason and maker. He is a member of the Royal Society of British Sculptors and has exhibited in the RWA and London with pieces in the private collection of the Wellcome Trust and Bristol University.

He loves traditional tooling techniques and enjoys trying to capture movement in stone. Geometry, science and the natural world are all strong influences in his work and he has a strong affinity with the vessel form after falling in love with a racing yacht he saw in a Scottish harbour aged 11.
