£2250

Stoneware ceramic with glaze

72h x 30w x 30d cm

 

An interesting feature to any interior/exterior space. The truncated form depicts the female form stretching sideways with a gentle raise to the hip. Working directly from a life model and inspired by a variety of cultural references I enjoy celebrating the strength and beauty of the female form.

Quill Richard Cresswell
Quill – Richard Cresswell
£3750

Stainless steel

3m h x 90cm w

 

Quill is a piece which came out of my experiments to create a kinetic sculpture which makes the invisible wind and air currents visible, by being independently pivoted each vane can follow the tiny differences in strength and direction of a breeze as it passes by touching the metal and creating beautiful curves and ripples in the shape.

Suspended Torso Susie Hartley £695
Suspended Torso – Susie Hartley
£695

Unique stoneware ceramic with green glaze mounted on a limestone base.

36h × 31w × 19d

 

Through Suspended Torso I wanted to capture the sensation of falling backwards. I enjoy creating sculptures that depict energy and movement within the human form , sculptures that have a tactile quality that draw you in so that you can experience new qualities and appealing forms from all angles.

70% H20 Joseph Hillier

3/7 76 x19 x 15cm

 

This refers to the proportion of water held in the human body. This edition is based on a large commissioned work for a site in Gateshead UK . it is inspired by the physics of rising bubbles and their exponential acceleration and swelling due to lower pressures acting on them as they rise through a liquid. The incised bubble forms are gilt with platinum.

Inspired by the very loved cartoon character of Popeye. Conceptually translating spinach into steel and freezing it with a twist of nature – natural organic and strength.

Autonomy Joseph Hillier

Autonomy – Joseph Hillier

£3600

Cold Cast Aluminium 1/20

25 x 30 x 25cm

 

This work was made from an impulse to close out the world and concentrate on an internal power. I wanted to create a series of autonomous pieces impervious to doubt

Ripple Richard Cresswell
Ripple – Richard Cresswell
£2950

Stainless steel

3.2m h x 3.6 mw

 

Ripple is the smaller sister piece to Wave I created last year. Its stainless steel rods which all come from a central hub are free to be moved by the lightest of air currents and tend to move in unison in the same way that a sea anatomy in a rock pool is moved my the sea water as it flows past.

Interred Joseph Hillier
Interred – Joseph Hillier
£6000

Cold Cast Aluminium 3/20.    

104 x 25 x 20

 

A continuous intertwining line describes a solitary standing figure. It was created during the first lockdown in 2020 and reflects the interred position in which we find ourselves. The work also looks to nature and the mathematics of botanical beauty to reframe our humanity relative to the natural world

On the breadth of History Nicola Anthony
On the breadth of History – Nicola Anthony
Large = £450 Medium = £150 Small = £90

Light reflective steel birds  (editions of 20 ) large 60cm w x 15cm h x 38cm d medium 30cm w x 10cm h x 15cm d Small 20cm w x 10cm x 5cm d

 

The artwork features starlings with words for wings and was born after the artist spent two years discovering her Irish ancestry after growing up in England and discovering that there is Irish heritage in her family history.

Hummingbird Richard Cresswell
Hummingbird – Richard Cresswell
£2650

Mirror polished stainless steel

2m h x  1.1mw

 

Hummingbird is a result of my brief encounter with one of these tiny creatures in the wild while walking in Australia. I probably saw the bird for 15 seconds but that shape and colour has stayed with me for several years now.

Weeping willow – Richard Cresswell
£1997

Nickel Silver 

110 x 70cm £1997

 

A weeping willow  was one of the first sculptures I ever made though it looked a little different, had many of the same qualities and still hangs in my hallway. Each leaf is suspended independently so that a slight air movement of an open door or someone passing by will add life to the piece. I have used nickle silver as it is my favourite and has the most beautiful colour of all the metals I use. As each tier is individually made and then adjusted to blend with the ones above and below they can be added or subtracted to suit

Places to swim I – Cara Wassenberg
£1225

White water cast glass

16 x 17 x 17cm

 

Made during lockdown during the Covid 19 pandemic the ‘Places to swim’ series was developed in response to the impossibility of access to coastal and wild swimming and a longing for exposure to the elements of wind and water. As a child I often swam from the steep pebbled Dorset beaches in the summer. Deceptively calm waters often hid a potentially dangerous undertow above a ‘shelf’ formed by the current.

Places to swim II – Cara Wassenberg
£1225

White water cast glass

23 cm diameter, 14 cm high

 

Made during lockdown during the Covid 19 pandemic the ‘Places to swim’ series was developed in response to the impossibility of access to coastal and wild swimming and a longing for exposure to the elements of wind and water. This piece has a very different feel to the first coastal piece in the series. The circular form feels less precarious and more self-contained. I wanted to express more of the comfort and security that I feel when swimming inland in contrast to the tidal challenges of beach swimming. 

Places to swim III- Cara Wassenberg
£1225

White water cast glass

26cm x 20cm x 13cm

 

Made during lockdown during the Covid 19 pandemic the ‘Places to swim’ series was initially developed in response to the impossibility of access to coastal and wild swimming and a longing for exposure to the elements of wind and water. Lochan is based on two places that I visited in the Covid pandemic Summer of 2020 .A trip that took me to some of the northern most parts of the British Isles once restrictions were partially lifted. These were a tiny Scottish loch at the base of the Old man of Storr (21.8.20) on the Isle of Skye and a small pool in the southern part of the Lake District near Broughton in Furness (26.8.20). 

La Santa – Gareth Griffiths
£1995

Brass and tulip wood

D 20 x W35 x H35 cm.

 

My Sculptures are influenced by West coast American architecture called “Googie” The origin of Googie derives from a John Lautner designed coffee shop built in West Hollywood.This style of architecture was born after the Second World War and became more notable during the 50s and 60s.Originally appearing first in commercial buildings used primary for restaurants, coffee shops, motels, gas stations and bowling alleys.

Particle Head – Joseph Hillier
£4800

Cast and fabricated bronze

50 x 40 x 40cm

 

Each particle was individually poured into sand molds to form this head. The molten bronze pieces were then carefully positioned to tessellate inside a mold of plaster before being TIG welded from the interior. An exploration pushing the possibilities for cast bronze sculpture and suggesting a glimpse into an interior world.

Cloudrockman – Joseph Hillier
£3200

Jesmonite and Aluminium 

79 x 19 x 15 cm

 

The tessellating skin of this sculpture becomes finer the higher it rises through the figure. The trapped gaze of the figure is implied through the twist in the pose. Exhibited at the british embassy and art fairs in china in 2017 this work toured china extensively with a number of other works by the artist

Mark one – Joseph Hillier
£900

Lost pla and wax cast bronze

19.5 x 8.5 x 8.5cm

 

Based on a friend of the artist, this work was made by 3d scanning the subject, digitally manipiulating the 3d file to create this elongated fragmentary version of his body. The piece was then 3d printed and invested in a mould before being burnt away then cast in bronze. The figure stands on the sprue system used to cast it.

Glitchy Little Man – Joseph Hillier
£900

Lost pla and wax cast bronze

19.5 x 8.5 x 8.5 cm

 

Modelled through an avatar in animation software this figure was tentatively posed to be inspecting the ground on which he stands, inspired by David Lynch’s film eraser head and dwells on our relationship to the ground beneath our feet, the figure stands on a smashed shard of wax, cast to bronze.

Binary Conversation – Joseph Hillier
£950

Stainless Steel

37 x 20 x 20 cm each 

 

These two fragmentary heads are the maquettes for a monumental piece of sculpture the artist was commissioned to make in Newbury in 2012 entitled ‘binary conversation. The title refers to the digital communications on which we have increasingly become to rely.

Banana Shot – Jas Sehmbi
£1875

Aluminium and wood.

1.27h x 1.34w x 41d cm

 

The saying derived from ball games ie football, table tennis and tennis. Inspired by the game I loved the most, I have combined nature and sport. This piece of sculpture mimics a swerving banana shot in the game of table tennis. Conceptually fusing the shot together with my local cockney rhyme of apples and pears.
