Welcome to James McLardy's Website

Using an intuitive process of investigation McLardy's sculptures embrace and appropriate the use of traditional skills such as marquetry, cornicing and faux marbling in order to create a dialog between notions of historic purism and a modernist aesthetic. His work questions how craftsmanship can be utilised to challenge the inherent perceptions of objects of through an exploration of cultural notions of grandeur, value and authenticity.
