As an artist working with clay and creating sculpture is another means of expression and Mackenzie loves getting his hands into the clay and creating a three-dimensional piece.
The finished pieces are usually cast in bronze, stainless steel or resin and Mackenzie works with foundry’s in the UK and U.S.A. to produce the finished pieces.
His sculpture work reflects the themes he explores in all of his artistic endeavours. Family, isolation, challenge, love, struggle, fun, community are all evident.
“The search for love, our need for it and the power of it, is apparent in lots of my work, not just the more symbolically obvious images.” Mackenzie Thorpe
