Pomarius is an ongoing collaborative project led by the artist Alice Andrea Ewing: the resulting works are bronze ‘direct casts’ of the produce of gardens, historical locations and ancient trees in the UK.
Every work is unique, a direct translation of the original organic specimen into bronze, produced by adapting the Italian Lost Wax casting method. The resulting bronze works are direct translations of the original organic specimens, capturing every detail and curiosity of form.
Pomarius now consists of a wide variety of natural specimens, fruits, nuts, chillies and other varieties of plant and produce. Many of collections have developed from personal relations between people and their homes, specific or ancient trees, and shared memories within these places. In every case, the translation into bronze is understood as a making explicit of the inherent value already held by the organic specimens - a value understood by the gardeners and carers of these locations.
All works are seasonal, with small collections produced each year. The bronzes are cast and finished at the artist’s studio in Suffolk
Previous collections have been developed with walled gardens and estates in East Anglia, Soho Farmhouse and the Eden Project, casting tropical produce from the biomes. Personal casting commissions are also available for the dedicated gardener.
