Since 1870, over four generations, William Cowley has been producing genuine, hand-crafted, Parchment and Vellum of the finest quality, using time-honoured methods largely unchanged for centuries. Our natural products can literally last for centuries which is unlikely with so called ‘parchment paper’ imitations!
With a background in architecture, interior and furniture design I am a self-taught sculptor and specialise in sandcasting to make pieces which engage the quality of bronze as a noble material in its own right.
Sculptures are intimate in scale and intended for the interiors of home, office or hotel.
Casting in sand moulds is a simple and ancient method far removed from the sophisticated lost wax operation used by most art foundries. The sand-casting process is relentless and unforgiving – the foundry is no place for a delicate original. It denies a complexity of form that imposes a disciplinary and enriching simplicity.
I cut, carve, grind or weld the cast bronze to create unique forms before invariably exposing the natural bronze or oxidising to produce the unique surface finishes that have always been an essential dimension of my work.
