A love of wildlife was the starting point for Paul’s carving from early in his life. Originally working in wood, he now sculpts his stylised forms of birds and other animals in bronze.
Paul makes ceramic sculptures to celebrate the human figure and its aspirations in joyful activity. Inspired by the flints strewn over the Wessex landscape, he recreates their fragmentation and colours in clay and glazes.
The geometry of the female form is what most interests Cathy. She looks beyond the detail in order to capture the underlying patterns and rhythms and enjoys expressing its lines, emphasising the tactile and curvaceous.
Tony learnt his craft under the guidance of the eminent animal sculptress, Margot Dent. He works from his studio in Hampshire, sculpting his favourite subjects of animals and portraiture. He works in cold cast bronze resin.
Janice creates large heads, individually constructed with large clay slabs. She keeps the form relatively simple with minimum expressive detail, and adds bold or elaborate designs with the use of glaze. Pieces are often Raku fired.
Sophie creates collections of themed pieces and is currently focusing on the nude, animals and dance. She sculpts in ceramic, resin and bronze. An art teacher for 28 years and a creative industrybusiness advisor, she lives and works in Bristol.
