Barry Mason - Helios XVI

Barry Mason was born in 1952. He studied fine art at the University of Reading (1970-74), the Slade School of Fine Art, University of London (1974-76) and Bath Technical College (1980-81), where he gained the City and Guilds advanced craft award in stone-masonry. He served on the executive committee of the Fountain Society from 1970 to 1974, and was elected Fellow of the Royal Society of British Sculptors in 1998.

Mason's Helios works are concerned with the passage of the sun and perhaps could be thought of as sculptural calendars.
