Unique. Max Bainbridge, one half of Forest + Found, is driven by a desire to create work that explores dialogues between sculpture, and a newfound language of craft. This series of ambitious vessels were originally made as part of a wider installation titled 'The Subjective Element', for the biennial Jerwood Makers Open Award in 2019. Each vessel was made in direct dialogue with elemental forces (water and fire) informing and dictating the form and finish of these sculptural works. Max Bainbridge has been exhibited extensively in the UK, including at the Roche Court New Arts Centre, Salisbury; Manchester Art Gallery, Manchester; Pitts Rivers Museum, Oxford; Yorkshire Sculpture Park; Ruthin Crafts Centre, Wales.
