Dominic Welch left school and became apprenticed to the sculptor Peter Randall Page, with whom he worked with for a decade. Randall Page has been the formative influence on his work. The smooth surface of Kilkenny Limestone is the preferred medium for his fluid abstract forms with their curvilinear incisions. Many of his carved pod and sphere forms suggest seeds or embryos with the promise of future growth. They reflect the natural harmonies found within nature but leave much to the imagination of the viewer. He has exhibited widely in the UK and abroad over the past 15 years to increasing success and acclaim.
