Philip Hearsey

After attending Camberwell School of Art in the mid 1960’s Philip Hearsey got involved in the building and joinery world; which, by chance, laid the foundation for a lifetime career in architecture, interior design and furniture making.

From 1975 Philip concentrated single-mindedly on design, but never lost touch with the practical aspects of what he was doing, keeping a workshop where he could experiment with materials, processes and possibilities. This practical understanding of the materials he works has proved invaluable in the creative development of his work.

Although, in his architectural work, Philip has been involved with sand-cast bronzes, it is only recently that it has become his main focus. Initially he was almost exclusively concerned with small vessel forms; pieces with a simple power and presence defined by bright polished edges illuminating shape and internalized with vibrantly oxidised surfaces. Philip’s interest in the vessel form is deep-rooted, but not in a utilitarian sense. He is concerned by the wider implications of enclosure and containment, sometimes of introduced objects but more often simply exploring space and notion, sometimes only lightly defined.

Work is held in many corporate and private collections in the UK, USA, Caribbean, Hong Kong, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Maldives, France, Spain, Switzerland, Ireland, Italy and Greece.
