Dominic Welch

Dominic Welch’s purity of form invokes natural harmonies that calm the senses and spark the imagination. The subtle curves belie the hard, stubborn stone beneath. Drawing his designs directly onto the stone by hand, Dominic pays minute attention to each curve, line and finish. In their formal simplicity and directness, Dominic’s sculptures create a unique and mesmerising visual experience.

"I’m quite haphazard about the way I find the form – completely by eye with little measuring. There’s no real knowing what’s right, but you get to a point where you think, OK, that works."

Born in Buckinghamshire, Dominic did not have a formal training in sculpture. Instead, having placed a speculative advert looking for an apprenticeship, he was fortunate to meet the sculptor Peter Randall-Page. He worked as an assistant to Peter for ten years, learning the craft of carving whilst developing his own ideas. For 12 years he has worked independently and has exhibited extensively in the UK, Australia, USA and Japan. Dominic is represented by Messum's Fine Art, London. He now lives in Devon.
