All this beauty of nature does have it’s darker side in the shape of the Sparrow Hawk, which also frequent’s in Adam Binder’s garden. His presence is always met with mixed emotions but his spirit and power is inspiring. Adam believes it is only right that he acknowledges the balance between predator and prey and the complex struggle for survival that exists between them.
Where possible Adam observes his subjects in their natural environment, he lets their movement and interaction inform the studies providing a richer basis for his sculptural pieces.
Adam Binder uses two foundries based in Cotswolds; Faber Pyropus Foundry in Cheltenham for smaller pieces and Castle Fine Arts Foundry in Stroud. Both specialise in lost-wax bronze casting, in which a wax reproduction of the sculpture is created with a ceramic shell. The wax is then replaced with a molten bronze.
