AirSpace Studio Show - featured artist #2 - Andrew Branscombe

Second in our series of highlighted studio artists, currently exhibiting in the AirSpace Studio Show '12 is Andrew Branscombe. The show continues Tuesday - Saturday until October 6th.

Andrew Branscombe, Dross-Work #1

Andy says about this work: 

Dross-Work #1 is part of a new series of works that make use of the discarded and easily overlooked materials and objects. The work is both original and a by-product of the processes I have to go through as an artist and handyman. The selection of material for the piece conforms to a set of rules. 1. The objects must be of the materials that the other work is made from. 2. Tools destroyed during the process of fabrication are also to be included. 3. Tools created during the process are to be included. 4. The objects should be finished to an equal standard as the work from which they are created. 5. Dust particles or shavings created during the process should not be included as external materials can contaminate these. This work is an experimental piece and one that I am hoping will lead onto a larger series of works in the future, alongside a refinement of the rules and processes.

Dross noun

[mass noun]1something regarded as worthless; rubbish 2foreign matter, dregs, or mineral waste, in particular scum formed on the surface of molten metal
