We cooperate as an association to advance the practice of sculpture and the reputation and appreciation of sculpture and sculptors in the community. This is regardless of whether or not we make a living from sculpture and regardless of our preferred style or medium. To this end we support artists’ moral rights, we advocate a professional attitude to the production and presentation of work and encourage the artistic and intellectual stimulation of interaction amongst artists of all persuasions.

Above: ‘Foetus’ by Michael Mezaros, copper rod (45cm high
x 56cm wide x 51 cm deep) 2005, worked on together with
his daughter Kate, who brazed it all together. The idea came
from the indistinct images of our babies using ultrasound.
The imagination generated by the imperfect image.
