Cass Sculpture Foundation has inspired and enabled creativity in contemporary sculpture since it opened 23 years ago by Sir Wilfred Cass. In response to the trends and motivations of contemporary art CASS today commissions work that explores the expanded definition of sculpture; using unconventional sculptural techniques such as writing, sound and ceramic. Launched last year CASS now commissions a small selection of artists to make ceramic works in the wood-fire kiln on site at CASS every year.
CASS is funded through sponsors, trusts, foundations, individual supporters and fundraising events to realise its ambitious programme of exhibitions and events. Artists also play a pivotal role in this through donating works to auctions, providing their time for free and making limited artists editions to sell at CASS to support its charitable endeavours.
