Andrew Kay

Based in the north of England, Andrew Kay is an award winning sculptor whose work can be seen throughout the world.

From his studio set in the wild hills of his native county of Cumbria, Andrew creates sculpture that attracts widespread acclaim; his work being commissioned by both public bodies and private collectors. Drawing from the natural world for inspiration, the life size sculptures capture the powerful anatomy and essence of wild beasts using deceptively simple form and structure.

Andrew graduated from Leeds with a BA Hons in design in 1992. He then toured Scandinavia extensively on a travel scholarship. From this experience he acquired a respect of the pure, clean design ethos that is so apparent in Scandinavian design. Following a period as a set designer for The Franz Kafka Theatre in Prague he returned to England and established a sculpture studio near Kirkby Lonsdale, Cumbria in 1994.

I cannot recommend Andrew or his work highly enough. We are very proud of our trio of Sika. I must say they are also appreciated by their cousins who visit them from time to time; a very interesting site.

Andy,  my wife absolutely loves him.  I am so pleased and he is fabulous.  All worked wonderfully and he is now commanding a fine position on the lawn. Thank you so much, he is a fantastic sculpture.  He is so industrial yet full of lovely elegant detail.  We are very impressed. Thank you to you and your wife for helping Clare’s day have such a super surprise….she has declared he is the best thing she has!
