Widely acknowledged as one of the pioneers of the art medal form, Dutton is one of the most prominent medal artists working today. Over the years he has had his medals presented to the Queen, won the competition for the Royal Mint 1998 Rugby World Cup £2 coin and was commissioned by the BBC to create The Archers 50th anniversary coin.

Nature in the Round explores the creative evolution of his work, from Dutton’s earliest medals to his recent abstract and experimental pieces.

The exhibition highlights the different subjects that influence Dutton’s work: from nature, to birds, flight, space travel and the architecture of Wolverhampton. Together, these works redefine the medal as a unique combination of sculpture, visual art and poetry.
