Exhibitions

Tall Owl

  Tall Owl is tall and slender, appearing to be stretched up as if standing on tip-toe, and wearing I think a rather surprised expression. This sandstone owl sculpture is part of a collection just delivered to Watermark Gallery in Harrogate for their Christmas showing. They’ve opened early, to make the most of the last […]

Artisans Bazaar Birds

  In the next few days, my sculpture will be delivered in readiness for the opening of the Artisans Bazaar at The Gallery by the Lakes, Dorchester. I’m so pleased with my little collection – there are twelve pieces – all birds, small enough to be carried home easily, with the idea they’ll make perfect […]

Mortall Gallery exhibition

  At the beginning of November a brand new gallery – Mortall Gallery in Barnard Castle – opens the doors to its first exhibition.  Next week I’ll be delivering sculpture for this inaugural show. I was approached a little while ago by David Hall, the gallery owner (and also an artist) about exhibiting, and amongst […]

Exhibition at Magpie Contemporary Art

  Bird tail-up is my very latest stone sculpture and one of my bird carvings on show at Magpie Contemporary Art Autumn Exhibition. The sculpture shows a bird with its tail up in the air, in a perky attitude.  I’ve carved in one or two details, some marks to suggest tail feathers and also crisp […]

A Bird in the Bombweed

  There are long stems of Rosebay Willowherb growing just now, the best colour here at the workshop by far.  Most everything else is going golden, or brown, or gone over completely. The tall pink flower spikes of Willowherb can often be seen grouped together in bunched stands in open spaces, such as woodland clearings, […]

New Collection for Tutton & Young

  This is a little preview of one of the sculptures – Garden Bird with a long tail – which you’ll be able to view online this weekend where a small collection of new pieces will be available from 9 am on Saturday morning as part of the amazing Tutton & Young MADE Makers show. […]

The Big 100 Artists Exhibition

    What a wonderful curation this is – all my stone sculpture was looking forward to being shown in the gardens at Glemham Hall alongside the other pieces, but it wasn’t to be.   With a herculean effort by the Art for Cure Team the exhibition is online instead. Happy browsing!   Opens 6pm […]

A Dragonfly and some Updates

  I’ve been carving a dragonfly – an Emperor Dragonfly just landed, and resting on a pebble.  Here I’m working on getting the legs as thin as I dare  and putting some detail into the tail, which will overhang the stone it is sitting on. What an apt sculpture to be working on just now […]

Watermark Gallery in Harrogate

    Yesterday I delivered a small collection of stone pieces to the Watermark Gallery in Harrogate, just in time for a celebration of their opening in the evening. It was a delight to meet owner Liz Hawkes and see her new gallery.  Liz is so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the art and sculptural pieces […]
