Art Description

Sculpture: Clay, terracotta, gold-leaf on Ceramic.

Inspiration: The nobility, wisdom and peace suggested by many ancient sculptures transposed into a modern context. A feeling of tranquillity and knowledge. A sense of communication. Textures add interest, burnishing and gold leaf accentuate the textures.

The sculptures are made with a direct honesty to the nature of the material. The work shows the way as it progresses into a finished piece. The hand becomes as important as the eye and the mind.

Technique: Hand built and unique. Red earthenware clay, slab and coil built and fired to 1000c in an electric kiln. Burnished and then embellished with 22ct gold leaf. Approximately 24cm high and 20cm wide.
Each piece is handbuilt and unique.

All sculptures are now sent in wooden cases to prevent any possible damage in transit. Any questions please get in touch.
