Chris Buck

Born in 1956, the son of a toolmaker, Chris Buck studied at Redruth School of Art. Returning to his industrial roots, he worked in several foundries, which gave him a thorough knowledge of casting techniques and general metal and woodwork.

He has been inspired by the St. Ives abstract artists, predominantly Dame Barbara Hepworth and Dennis Mitchell and has since joined the Penwith Society of Arts himself.

Since 1982 he has lived in Cornwall with his family. He works from his studio in a converted byre, overlooking fields and hedgerows, and this brings a feeling of harmony with the natural world to his art.

Though producing sculpture in both wood and stone, it is in bronze that he finds the greatest satisfaction, combining natural forms and industrial precision to achieve individual pieces.
