Jackie Needham A ceramic artist from Hull Jackie's magical figures take inspiration from the relationship between humans and animals in fairytales and folklore. Interweaving the symbolism of these ancient stories with personal memories, she blurs the boundaries between truth and mythology to offer the viewer an alternative narrative. Some of Jackie's ceramic creatures reference a nostalgic past, being whimsical and gently humorous, whereas others are psychologically darker and thought provoking. Prices range from £70 - £250

Simon grew up in rural County Durham and this is where he draws his inspiration as well as his great respect and passion for the natural world. He can often be seen, with his sketching equipment and camera, quietly observing the birdlife. Working closely with local bird sanctuaries has allowed him to carefully study the form, structure and character of birds that he then translates into his sculptures.
All of Simon’s work is hand finished. The larger sculptures are constructed using wooden armatures for support. When completed they are removed and hollowed out to reduce the risk of exploding in the kiln. After drying and bisque firing the pieces are treated with a selection of oxides, slips and stains and re-fired. A process that may be repeated several times in order to achieve the layering in the mottled plumage effect. The wood that Simon uses for mounting the pieces on is all recycled wood - either bought from local farmers or from reclamation yards. This is very important to Simon who strongly believes in sustainability. The images here are representative of the kind of work Simon makes. Each piece is individual - please contact us for current stock and prices. Birds range from £75 - £650.
Chloe has been making animal sculpture since 2000 and has been inspired both by worldwide animals with appeal & the local wildlife found on the land surrounding her workshop which is set in 6 acres of woodland on the banks of the river Tamar. Her ceramics are Raku which is rapidly fired until glowing hot; its then taken from the kiln whilst still glowing and placed in a container of sawdust, this instantly combusts and the shock of the air causes the glaze to craze at which point it is covered and left to cool, the smoke from the burning sawdust penetrates the crazing giving the distinctive grey lines. Prices range from £20 -£60
Elissa lives and works in Wales. She is creative in many ways but these birds are her most popular collection. Elissa's mother began making these stoneware birds in the 1970's, and their poularity was instant. Elissa decided to continue the bird-making business after a palmist told her she should work with clay. Today the birds can be found in galleries across the UK, each one handmade and decorated by Elissa, just as her mother did before her. £20 each
