Matthew Lane Sanderson is well known for producing highly crafted, unique and ingenious works in original settings.
He is currently engaged upon a number of public art projects across the UK.
His training began in Sculpture, diverted to fashion and finally silversmithing.
He maintains that the quality of design and craft takes precedence over all and couples this with an enormous amount of energy and what he calls ‘playing furiously’ in the early stages of research and ‘physical pressure’ in realising the final pieces. Although the works always involve a great deal of labour-intensive activity he somehow maintains the spontaneity and grace of the original concept.
The simple and passing things are often the most beautiful and we seem to be blinded by a strobe of modern media from identifying the truly valuable. I hope to make things that entertain and provoke new thought, yes, but also to endure, to weather and sustain interest in any period of time.
