Joe Inglis is fascinated by the beauty of abstract forms found in nature. These works attempt to reflect and interpret that beauty in an imaginative way. Most recently, he has been working on pieces based around fragments of wood from ancient vine plants that previously grew in the vineyards in southern France.
Starting with the decayed, gnarled old plants, which are often 40 or more years old, he explores and develops the fascinating shapes they offer by carving the wood and building up with plaster, before finishing with waxed bronze resin. Mounted on Cotswold limestone, each piece is unique, and through its name has a link back to the chateau and year the vine was planted.
