Meet the Sculptors:

aesthetically pleasing and harmonious way.
Tessa Campbell Fraser. Flying Dream.

commissions have included the carved lettering for The Reading Room of
The British Museum and works for members of the Royal Family, Billy
Connolly and Sir Michael Parkinson.
Dido Crosby. Iron Stag.
Dido Crosby translates into bronze the essence of each animal.
Geoffrey Dashwood. Peregrine.
produces refined sculptures to attain smooth, tactile, pure forms,
further enhanced in bronze by the application of coloured and
multi-coloured patinas. In these sculptures he combines his own
aesthetic ideals, establishing a distinctive style which is now
internationally recognised as being quintessentially Dashwood.
Nick Davis. Whispers from an Unwrinkled Horizon.
work is collected throughout the world including his 'Fragmentation'
table sold into the private collection of the Rockefeller Family. At the
ICFF Nick Davis debuted his 2013 collection of etched bronze and
stainless steel furniture. A fantastic response, sales and many offers
from showrooms in the US and UK were made.
Paul Day. Femme Assiesse.
Day's exhibitions attract considerable interest from both the public
and media alike. This appeal of an artist who is unquestionably of his
time but whose world links up with a longstanding tradition is rare.
Jeni Fairey. Balance.
her time at Tussauds Jeni became interested in anatomy and has pursued
this interest which informs and inspires her sculptural work.
David Goode. Small Ferry Man.

with myths and folklore, and a love of the writings of Tolkein.
David Harber. Mantle.
Harber creates beautiful, one-off pieces on a human or monumental scale
for indoor environments and outdoor landscapes. Each piece is
hand-built using both traditional and modern techniques in his
work is centred on the human form with focus on expressing the human
condition as well as an idealised state of mind. Materiality versus
illusion and corporeality versus the spiritual.
Brendan Hesmondhalgh. Greyhound on Circle.
Hesmondhalgh creates sculptural works that encapsulate and embody a
creature's spirit in inimitable style. Using sculptural surfaces like
that of a canvas, directional and textural marks are included to enhance
John Joyce. Corvus.
John Joyce's sculptures
focus primarily on the study of the natural world, and the human
anatomy. Through manipulation and exaggeration of form, and through the
illusion of the perceived weight of an object, serves to create a
dynamic tension within the work, and as a result has a profound effect
on the balance of the compositions as a whole.
Hamish Mackie. Bull Head.
self-taught, Hamish's style is unique; his work captures the inner
core, strength, and grace of the subject. His sculptures are his own
interpretation, and not a photographic representation of the subject,
through his close observation and his expressive manipulation of the
materials Hamish is able to capture an instinctive moment of animal
