Equine Head

Equine Head

Set on a slab of Bath stone this horse head embodies the strength and pride I see in the horse

Original
Fired Clay
27cm x 23cm x 16cm

£200.00
Exploring the form of the horse for me is to describe the strength and proud poise which is most elegantly displayed by the head and neck. Clay, indeed terracotta, is a wonderful material to use and when fired can be coloured in many ways without actually glazing. I enjoy using pigment and wax at the moment. This head is the brother to Taureau, a bronze sculpture of mine, and these are 2 of a genre that for me is just begining.

Vicious Circle

Vicious Circle

Steel – once the cutting edge of Britain. Now rusting, rotting, melding with mud, residual oil rainbowing in puddles.

Steel, tamed by fire, set hard and jagged to cut through,

Straight edge turned circle, weighted, rolling…

The physical division of its old self creating something new.


Cutting the cutting tool, breaking the man made edge, causing the circle, taming the violent beauty of the blade – here is a story.

Larch Lady

Larch Lady

Tall garden sculpture of a lady, her breast defined in the grain of the wood, the beauty of the grain suggesting the intricacies and beauty within us all. Her face, carved in lime suggests intelligence and inquisitivity, looking inward and looking out. On the other side of this carving - a free standing plank of larch wood - her hair is carved and the grooves stained with wood dye. The hair is carved like celtic knotwork and flows from top to bottom with a beautiful fluidity. She is one of a series of 3, a discussion on the beauty of woman.
