Scottish artist Roddy Mathieson graduated in Sculpture from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art ten years ago, and has gone on to develop his practice in public art, direct his own unique foundry, and produce a prolific and diverse portfolio of works.

His work is informed by skills, processes, and materials, and is influenced by landscape, and the elements that shape it. Researching themes of site-specifics and our relationship with nature, Mathieson has produced landmark works such as ‘Sanctuary’ in North Uist, and M∞ in Glasgow.

Not content with using diesel and propane powered foundries Mathieson set about creating his own environmentally friendly foundry. Engaging with the landscape he processed natural materials and harnessed the elements to create ‘Alchemy’ - the award winning mobile foundry that employs traditional techniques to create contemporary works.
