Harrup has spent the last month at the Scottish Sculpture Workshop developing the use of a bronze age mould making technique which utilises clay, sand and horse dung to create a unique material for firing.
This traditional method is predominantly used as an in-between material that holds a temporary negative for casting, although Harrup has reversed this technique allowing this to become the finished work itself. His work has been influenced by an interest in the architecture of the unseen, with works such as Gordon Matta Clark’s conical intersect and the ancient underground cities of Cappadocia, Turkey playing a major role in the development of his practice.
Tom graduated from the MFA course at Glasgow School of Art in 2010 and has continued his practice at the Glasgow Sculpture Studios.
