About Neil Welch
Neil Welch is a celebrated, young British sculptor whose creative endeavours began in the world of theatre. Neil left school at the age of 16 and gained a two year apprenticeship at the New Victoria theatre as a stage set and props designer. Whilst at the theatre he discovered a love of sculpting and an appreciation for the beauty of and movement of dance. He then wished to learn from the masters of the past.
Welch spent seven years studying as an in house figurative sculptor for Wedgewood, Coalport and Royal Worcester with his work making a significant impact. He was also privileged to work with Elizabeth Emmanuel, the designer of Princess Diana's wedding dress. He created sculptures to showcase her dress designs. Neil immediately displayed an amazing talent for capturing the complexities of the human form and the gestures and moods of a chosen moment. When he decided to work as an independent artist he quickly benefitted from many commissions. He undertook high profile work for Royal Doulton, Disney and LOCOG, the official governing body of the 2012 Olympic Games.
Neil was born in the heart of the potteries in Staffordshire and now works in the region from his own studio. His bronze sculptures are exceptionally beautiful, emotive and inspirational. He approaches his work with passion and so each and every piece is truly a labour of love. He works closely with the foundry to ensure the best possible finishes and his pieces often sell out on release as he has become one of the most celebrated artists working in Britain today.
At Sculpture Gallery we are delighted to introduce you to the stunning work of Neil Welch. Our range now features a fine collection of signed, limited edition solid bronze sculptures created using the Lost Wax casting technique. Each edition is limited to just 50 pieces. The subjects are impossibly elegant dancers and the movement of the dance is explored together with the curves of the human form. There is an incredible grace and refinement in each piece with flowing lines that draw the eye up and around as the figures almost appear to take their next step. Welch's figures boast an Art Deco quality which evokes the glamour and theatricality of the period.
