Artist Statement of Ian Haggerty

I only look to nature as my inspriation, I am a tradtional Scuptor and revel in the smallest detail of any subject I take on. i love the work of the old masters and respect the toil and time spent on one sculpture, it is evident that quality only comes at a price, and generally that prive requires committed talent and the consummation of time as they go hand in hand. I do not believe that you can improve too much on the beauty of nature but one is able to enhance a moment in time by providing a different perspective to reality. If I was to live a hundred life times, I would not be able to fulfil my passion for the need to sculpt. I mostly enjoy sculpting people and animal interacting in a harmonious and coexistent setting.

I have progressed over the years from minute finger sized resin sculpted figurines to 3 metre high Concrete and Bronze and resin sculptures weighting over a tonne. This evolution and passion for detail has stood me in good stead for my recent works, and I really enjoy it when people can see that little extra effort in the work I portray.

Customer comment on 'Standing female (nude Contemporary Wall statue/decoration/sculpture)' by William Ashley-Norman
This lovely sculpture has been arrived without any problem. Now it is sitting in my house. We will move it to our new place for public showcase when the whole decoration has finished. I will keep you update with our project soon. Thanks for your big help, anyway. We are still evaluating the whole space to see if we need to purchase one or two Nikki Taylor`s sculptures as well.
