Visit to Andy Scott's sculpture studio

Article from Menstrie Matters for June / July 2008

A very pleasant and enjoyable evening was spent visiting the workshop of Andy Scott, the sculptor commissioned to create an artwork for the village.

Andy is the artist who designed the man and woman on the roundabouts on the King o'Muirs Road.

Eleven of us (from the Community Council, Clackmannanshire Council and some young folk from Menstrie) were shown round, to see and hear about work he has in progress. He explained how his work proceeds from his head to a rough sketch usually on the workshop floor to the finished work of art.

Fans of Scottish football would have been delighted to see the 10-foot model of John Grieg. This was a commission that Andy did for Rangers to commemorate the Ibrox disaster; it was amazing. Also sitting outside were the Kelpie horses that you might have seen at the Falkirk wheel. They are being made into far larger ones for a future project at Grangemouth.

We discussed details of the work for Menstrie, which is a work in progress and should be in place before the end of 2008.
