After graduating in 1995 from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design (University of Dundee), Ean moved in many directions acquiring numerous and varied creative and technical skills. In 2002 he set up his own product design company, creating and producing a wide variety of different commercial design products and concepts. In 2015 Ean returned to his original path of sculpture which he creates in Yorkshire.
His work explores the complex and fragile correlation between humans and the natural world, and how as a species we continuously alter and change through design in our environment. Through his sculpture he showcases the graphic magnificence of the memories of both human industrial development and the stark reality of natural mortality.
The animals are painstakingly created using copper and brass obtained from recycling services and scrap metal merchants. Glaze textures are reached through reactive mixtures and all pieces are hand painted using a variety of different paints and finishes.
