“Sculpture does not need words to make an individual admire or understand it. Bronze, being such a permanent material, serves to remind me of that. It will far outlast the artist or the collector and has to stand on its own when whatever words have been used to describe it are gone.”
- Digby Veevers-Carter
Digby Veevers-Carter is a bronze sculptor and founder who has worked in various mediums over the years including plaster, wood stone and bronze. He favors bronze for its versatility and has used this medium exclusively for the last ten years.
Veevers-Carter grew up on a small island in the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean and attended schools in England. He moved to New York City to pursue a career in sculpting after completing his degree from York University. He cites Max Beckman, Camille Claudel, Auguste Rodin, Ernest Trova and Alberto Giocometti as his greatest artistic influences.
Veevers-Carter founded Somerset Foundry in Truro in 1998 and moved the foundry to West Bath, ME in 2002 where he sculpts and casts full time. He built his foundry by hand using field stone gathered from his property in Maine. The impressive stone building is where he casts his wax models into bronze sculpture utilizing the lost wax casting technique. He does his own finish work and patinas in his studio.
He has been the featured artist in articles in Boston Globe, Cape Cod Home, Cape Arts Review, Cape Travel Guide and The Lincoln Times in Damariscotta, ME. Veevers-Carter has shown extensively in both galleries and juried shows throughout the United States. His indoor and outdoor sculptures can be found in private collections both nationally and internationally.
