Cecilia Moore’s current work combines all the elements of her training in sculpture and metalwork to focus on “raising” an ancient, near-obsolete process of hammering a flat disc of metal to create hollow sculptural forms. It could perhaps be produced using mechanical means, but this slow, physically demanding technique becomes a ritual between the metal, hammer and maker and is the deliberate act of art-making that is central to this work.
Pieces are formed from copper, bronze, copper-based alloys, silver and often incorporates found objects and used metal parts. Surfaces are textured by a variety of methods from etching, to engraving to hammering pieces on pitted welding tables. The forms and parts always seem to wander from their initial sketched design, before decisions can be pinned down and the parts fitted and soldered together, the colour patinas too evolve and change. This method of working intuitively is far slower, and perhaps why each piece is unique, but also why each piece is a joy to make and own.
