About Geoffrey Stinton

The man who rediscovered the Aeolian Harp as an art form. The Ancients used to use wooden boxes with harp strings which were vibrated by the wind but it was not until Geoffrey applied his technical skill combined with his artists flair that something so pleasing on the eye and ear has been created from modern composites. Despite being in such demand for what he can make he still somehow finds time to create new and exciting forms.

Biography / CV of Geoffrey Stinton

Geoffrey, a contemporary West Sussex based sculptor, has long been a pioneer in the application of modern compsites, especially in monocoque structures.

After leaving art school Geoffrey spent 10 years working on special effects in television and theatre. He has always been aware of the importance of the relationship between Industry and Art and has worked on various projects for ICI and BP.

In 1980 Geoffrey moved to West Sussex and turned his attention to the design and production of models for Royal Homes, National Trust and the Orient Express. Free-form sculpture however, has always been Geoffreys first love and a challenging commission received in 1994 to design and produce an Aeolian harp using modern composites, was enthusiastically accepted and developed.

His Aeolian harp is an imaginative example of what can be achieved when a durable material is used to make an ancient musical instrument.

Geoffrey is reponsible for the most recent innovative and creative development to this wonderfully eccentric instrument. He has radically advanced the Aeolian harp`s form, technology and application.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."

Customer comment on 'Red Kite (Steel Bird of Prey life size garden sculptures)' by Ramsay Dick
Hi Peter, The Red Kite arrived today and WOW !! Its fantastic, I have spoken to the artist today to congratulated him on his work. Its in place in our garden and my family are soooooo thrilled with it, he certainly is a clever guy and very talented. I know we will get many more positive comments throughout the summer and can only say a very big thank you for the opportunity to own something that we would not think of having. Thanks once again X,
