Sculpture by Evan J. Hughes

A selection of some of my sculptures, both abstract and figurative, serious and for fun. Click on the images to see a larger version.



Mendip Limestone

This very fine grained Mendip limestone has been carved in an abstract form, highly polished on the sides, and left in a natural rough state on the top. The limestone is very dense and behaves more like a marble. A pattern has been cut into three sides of the stone and gilded in 23 3/4 carat gold leaf.

Theory of Wholes

Banbury Limestone

The piece is carved from a fine-grained Banbury limestone. The front is flat with angled sides, and the back is curved. All the surfaces have been ground to a deep sheen. Two deep saw cuts have been made on the front face, along with a single hole to give a depth of shadow to the surface. The piece is mounted using a small brass rod on a base which was cut from the lower left corner of the piece (when viewed from the front).


Plaster (painted)

Karen is the second of my lamps. She is constructed from plaster and burlap, built up over a welded steel armature. The oval base is cast from concrete, and the junction between the body and the base is reinforced with glass reinforced plastic. Unlike Lisa, the cable run is straight and easy to wire! See how Karen was made here.

Boris the Spider

Steel and Granite

Boris has legs constructed from welded steel reinforcing bar, and a granite boulder for an abdomen.


Coarse Pembrokeshire Sandstone

This abstract form has been carved from a very coarse Welsh sandstone. The piece was completed around March and has echos of harps and budding flowers, reminding me of St. Davids day (1st March).


Pembrokeshire Old Red Sandstone

This fine grained red sandstone has been carved in an abstract form. The teardrop-shaped hole is reversed (point downwards) on the reverse side, hence the name.


Granite, Iron and a Golf Club

This simple form is constructed using a golf club for the head. The shaft of the club has been heated and bent (carefully!) and fixed into the granite body. A single Iron leg has been used to support the piece.
