'I think if you look at my medallion work you'll see it evolve away from the foundry. This has been influenced by my move to a remote rural situation where some vernacular do it your self voice has been heard. It is also deeper than that again in wanting hand made one off organic rawness rather than industrial repeat editioning associated with manufacture. This is part of my questioning the society I live in, both in terms of values and its propaganda.' Nigel Brown, 2015.
