Description

Chameleon (Rainbow Blue) by Edge Sculpture

Each sculp has been originally sculpted from clay, which allows the sculptor to be freer, giving the pieces the dynamic and organic fee, stylised by Edge Sculpture. The finished clay sculp ‘masters’ are then taken to be moulded , and each subsequent piece has been carefully hand cast from this mould using ceramice polystone, which allows for faithful reproduction of detail and texture applied to the original sculpt. the finishing touch is the skilful application of hand painting and finishing, which brings the sculpt to lift. the end result is a centre piece and talking point in anyone’s living room!

Matt  Buckley started off his sculpting career over 20 years ago having been afforded the opportunity to hone his craft by following in the footsteps of his step father, Robert Harrop, by working on the ‘Country Companions’ and later named ‘ Doggie People’ range which have resided successfully to this day within the ‘giftware’ and ‘collectible’ industry for well over 25 years themselves.

Licensed figurines that Matt has both sculpted personally and directed include the Beano and Dandy, Camberwick Green, Roald Dahl, Bagpuss, 2000 AD, The Magic Roundabout, Mr Benn and Gerry Anderson’s Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and Stingray, with many pieces being continually produced to this date.

Matt remains the Creative Director of Robert Harrop Designs LTD and indeed the skills and ability to manufacture quality figurines from within their family run company in Shropshire has enabled this very new collection of work to become a reality and Edge Sculpture to thrive.

This is a very new collection and very much at the beginning of its creative evolution and Matt indeed looks  forward to designing, sculpting and producing  many new concepts well into the future.

I am, that I am… A chameleon… Shifting between the hues That camouflage my insecurities, That others will think I’m a natural fit To the terrain of my environment

That I might remain hidden and safe From the pretatory dangers Of those that hunt out vulnerability, And climb atop a warmed rock To bask, uncaringly, in the sun

Skillfully scrambling, on feet, (that cannot hurry me fast enough) To blend into yet another backdrop Of blues and greens and flecks of gold Beneath branches of sudden escape

I am…that I am A chameleons… Ever ready to meld into a harmless entity Eye-catchingly quick to disappear from sight In a flash of changing color Protected by the armor that is My ingrained ability to adapt.
