Michael AYRTON

1921 - 1975, London, UK

Michael Ayrton took up sculpture in the 1950s, working in wax and bronze, under the tutorage of Henry Moore. His first studies were of acrobats that were possibly a response to his own painful arthritis. From the mid-1950s Aryton became fascinated by Greek mythology and especially with the myth of Daedalus, successfully working again with the London Artiic jeweller John Donald to recreate the mythical golden honey-comb.
