Episode notes

How can you launch a successful career as a sculptor? What is it like breaking into the New York market? How can you ship large-scale sculptures overseas? How do private commissions work? What is like creating a thriving studio block and community hub?

I loved chatting to Mark Beattie in his studio in North London. We spoke about the challenges of being a full-time sculptor, his experiences of shipping work over to Brooklyn, and his amazing vision as co-founder of Hive Studios.
