New to the gallery is artist sculptor Louise Shotter with her delightful collection of unusual stoneware pieces to include a giraffe’s head, an elephant and a lidded hawk pot – complete with toes! All one offs and safe to stay outside through the winter as frost proof.
Another new comer to the gallery is Lyn Harrison who makes functional and decorative garden pots in stoneware decorated with slips, glazes with a woodash finish. Her emphasis is on originality.
Simon Griffiths creates unique birds and animals in stoneware. He has made several Barn and Tawny owls, kestrels, kites, rooks, all life size and some displayed on wooden posts ready to be displayed outside.
The work of five Artist blacksmiths will be showing a collection of their latest work in forged steel to include water features, dragons, green men, poppies, ferns, sheep, buzzards, herons, hares, owls as well as abstract pieces along with practical garden furniture and plant supports. Some will be galvanised to protect them from the weather.
Miranda Michells creates her pieces from stainless steel and mild steel. Every piece is a one off with no casting or reproduction involved, anything from hares and birds through to full size horses.
Sculptor David England who lives and works in Herefordshire has carved some new smaller pieces using Portland and Forest Of Dean stone, each one unique.
Finally, sculptor Helen Sinclair, a long established artist with the gallery, produces limited edition and unique contemporary sculpture in stone resin.
Each unique piece of garden sculpture is designed to give hours of pleasure to time spent in the garden.
