"Greatest Hits 7"

Front cover of exhibition catalogue, photography by Stan Dutton

We invited fifty contemporary sculptors to produce a piece of work no bigger than 15cms to be cast in silver; this presented a challenge to more than a few but for us it was a very exciting adventure.
Christmas came early for the gallery as parcels arrived from across the globe bearing the most surprising and wonderful contents: tiny modelled waxes, intricately carved stones, found objects, sometimes smelly, crushed paper balls, meticulously detailed pieces and bold abstractions.
We also had some interesting telephone instructions and a visit to the fruit section of the local supermarket with a six inch ruler resulted in some puzzled looks from fellow shoppers!

A few skilful hours down the line and the sculptures became unified as they emerged in wax.  Further transformed into silver by the consummate skills of the foundry craftsmen they began to hint at the impact of the exhibition.  The final stage was all about discovery as Rungwe explored with each artist the range of surface treatments, patinas and colour effects achievable on silver.

The exhibition was the first of its kind for Pangolin and one we considered a great success. The exhibition toured extensively in the UK and Europe; the works even had their own purpose built transport crates!
