The Auld Yin. aka Alex Gardiner.
I am situated in the beautiful Blue Mountains of New South Wales, Australia. I create my sculptures in the scenic town of Bullaburra which is at an altitude of 2,500 feet, between Penrith and the famous tourist town of Katoomba. I hope you enjoy my passion for sculpting and collecting all types of exciting Animal sculptures.To see all my work . My Sculptures are created with love, care and imagination. I hope this is not a selfish endeavour for such passion can be shared by all. I have in the past concentrated on Australian Native Animal Sculptures. Now I have ventured into all manner of animals the larger of which which I have turned into Table Lamps. All my Animals are first sculptured in fine clay.They are then carefully moulded and cast in Hydrostone. Finally they are Air brushed and coated in a clear non discolouring varnish. By casting in Hydrostone they keep the exact detail first achieved in the fine clay. Hydrostone is the oldest of all the Gypsums.
