Michael Kusz is a Yorkshire based sculptor creating unique works from recycled materials, mainly copper. Coppers ease to manipulate allows Michael to express any form and style that he intends to. It also allows the piece to be built to last, taking up to 90 years outside to turn from copper to verdigris green.
When beginning a piece, he immerses himself in the subject, intensively researching to really get a feel for its nature, gaining insight as to how it will transcribe into metal. He creates working templates, that when transformed to copper, expresses the desired aesthetics.
“I am confident with a wide variety of materials and techniques I draw on life, I work with intuition, I aim to make my inner critic smile.”
