William Pye FRSS
'Sensitivity to place is the key to william Pye's deployment of sculpture and water in an ever-shifting panorama of materials and shapes..........' Sir Roy Strong.
The consciousness of water all around me during my early years has given me a deeply rooted fascination with water. It was natural therefore that at some stage this enchantment would be reflected in my work as a sculptor. Since the mid nineteen eighties the majority of my sculptures, mainly in stainless steel and bronze, have incorporated water in a whole variety of forms that include reflection, rollwave patterning on stainless steel, laminar flow through jets and spouts, and vortices.
