Glasgow - City of Sculpture
By Gary Nisbet
Scott Associates
Sculpture and Design Ltd
(fl. 1998-)

Glasgow firm of sculptors, interior designers and fabricators, founded by Andy Scott (b. 1964) and five other former members of the Glasgow Sculpture Studios:

Simon Hopkins, Derek Cunningham, Kenny MacKay, Patric Moran and Ewan Hunter, with Wilma Eaton as their educational and outreach officer.

They have produced a number of public sculptures in Glasgow including, The Bringer, Springburn Way (1991), the Ibrox Disaster Memorial, Ibrox (2000), the Carmyle Heron, Carmyle (1998), and Minerva, Kelvinhaugh (2000),

Their work outwith Glasgow includes, Heavy Horse, M8 (1999), a bronze statue of footballer Davie Cooper, Hamilton (1999, by Kenny Mackay), and Shipyard Workers, Braehead (2000).

Amongst their recent commissions are sculptures for Glasgow City Council's Land Services Department (Parks and Open Spaces), incorporating motifs from the city arms, which won a Royal Horticultural Society Gold Medal at Hampton Court, 2000, and a series of sculptures representing Neptune, a Mermaid and three Sirens for Cranhill Water Tower (2001).

The company no longer employs Messrs Mackay or Cunningham, and Moran and Hunter are now on a part-time project to project basis. GSA graduate Peter Johnstone recently joined the firm as their full time fabricator.

Their current projects include 6m high Angels for the City Park development on Alexandra Parade in the East End, the memorial to footballing legend "Slim" Jim Baxter, a winged figure for Monkton Aerospace Park at Prestwick Airport, and a steel Highland Bull for Tollcross Park.

Simon Hopkins who looks after the architectural detailing side of things is working on a series of gates for Castlemilk, a project in collaboration with conceptual artist Christine Borland, and furniture for an Arts centre in Edinburgh with Zoo Architects.
