Roger Hardy

Roger Hardy is a sculptor based in Suffolk. His sculpture is figurative, made from reclaimed wood, metal and with clay additions, configured to create the human form.

Roger's figures represent individuals of all types, either single figures or assembled in groups. They most closely resemble nomadic tribesman.
The starting point for his creative process begins with natural erosion and seasoning of his wooden component parts, often in the local river, the Alde, that brings a sense of worn age to the finished sculptures or construction.
His sculptures made using found elements from local boat yards and estuary worn wood, have the sense of being carved long ago. Roger uses the natural processes in the degradation of his materials to simplify the essence of the human form.
