About - Kara Sanches Sculpture

Sculpture for the Garden & Home

Hello and welcome! A little bit about me. I live and work in the seaside city of Brighton & Hove. Its a fun and creative place full of interesting people. I live a short walk to a very pebbly beach. My sculptures reflect the scenery found along the shoreline, inspired by the textures, patterns and plant life. This combined with the movement of the water and changes in the weather allow a rich resource for ideas. I like to work in clay as its wonderfully flexible and can combine simple smooth lines with an endless use of texture and pattern which I love. I have a fascination with creating curves and simple pleasing familiar shapes. I'm also obsessed with texture and pattern which I feel brings my sculptures to life. Once the sculptures have been finished its over to the moulding and casting stage.

The process of cold cast bronze is a skilled and labor intensive one. Most of my sculptures have a bronze finish, however recently I cast one in iron and treated it to become rusty. When it rains on the sculpture the rusted patination continues to change, its wonderful. I would love to hear from you with any questions.
