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.
Tony creates these striking figures, hand built using a white clay. Most of the final colour and decoration comes from smoke penetrating the surface of the sculptures, finished with glazes, lustres and metallic elements.
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.
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.
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.
A Somerset-based sculptor, Chris creates wonderful metal garden sculptures inspired by natural forms including leaves, buds and flowers, incorporating recycled materials where possible.
