Artist – Jay Lloyd
Bronze holds the same allure for me as it did for all those who have worked in it for centuries.
I like my work to have simple clean lines and I take pride in the handcraft nature of what I do. The process is as important to me as the final product. Everything I make is individually cast and finished by hand to capture the warmth and beauty of bronze for everyone to enjoy.
We moved from South Africa to Waiheke Island in 2010 where I established my new studio and foundry. I do a variety of bronze art work from jewellery to sculpture and my work is exhibited throughout New Zealand and is held in private collections in New Zealand, America, Europe and Asia.
I qualified as an industrial designer in the 1980s but I’m fortunate that my work has allowed me to follow a different path.
