 ETCHINGS

 

Sonia was educated at Glasgow University, graduating with a B.Sc. in agricultural botany. She worked in scientific publishing as editor of Chemoreception Abstracts.

In 1988 she started studying printmaking at Morley College. She is a founder member of Half Moon Printmakers, a member of the cooperative Southbank Printmakers and a past vice-chair of the Printmakers' Council.

Her interest in animals started in childhood with a pig called Hilary, geese called Charlie and Cassandra, and a mongrel, Pearl.

Training as a biologist meant, observing plants and animals, drawing them to aid understanding. But now she can have fun with her drawings and making them into etchings.

Born in Yorkshire, Jonathan has been making sculpture for over 30 years, elected a member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors in 2004. Jonathan works from his studio in York carving sculptures in wood, stone and bronze.

Known for designing and sculpting York's famous cat sculptures, Jonathan is also creating semi-abstract and figurative sculptures for public and private commissions.

P R O F I L E

Jonathan has been commissioned for sculptures to be sited both at home in the UK and more distant locations, in America, Scandinavia and India.

Jonathan has had experience of team leading in commission projects. This includes his work at York College where he is a Course Tutor in Art & Design.

JENNIFER LOWE sculpture

 

Although I come from an Arts teaching background, i.e.. English/Art/Dance, I am largely self taught in sculptural techniques and am now producing one off ceramic pieces for indoor or outdoor display.

Expressive posture and movement in animal behaviour is my chief aim and I am currently spending more time on the interaction of creatures, whether in aggressive rivalry or more relaxed, bonding relationships.

Sculptures for outside are generally life size and made of a good quality crank clay, often in monochrome to suit a garden setting, although some are more colourful preferably in matt or semi-matt glazes. All are hand built using slabs and coils then fired to stoneware temperatures to make them frost resistant.

More recently I am making greater use of highly textured crater glazes, particularly for toads and lizards which can be both subtle or colourful and can be suited to indoors or outdoors

 JJ VINCENT ceramic sculptor

'I will not be around forever but it's reasuring to think that my fingerprints might be.'

As an essentially self-taught artist, my natural tendency is to want to do, make and understand everything.

Knowing that this is probably a short cut to insanity, I have given myself a revised brief - Just make animals from mud. The mud I use is a sophisticated blend of nature's materials, but still, just dirt and water.

I initially thought that focusing on the animal kingdom might be a bit restricting, but if you include plankton and killer whales, not to mention occasional invented beasts, I think there will be enough to keep me busy.

I am fascinated by the fact that we can take the stuff that is lying about in, on and under the ground and with a bit of imagination, produce something that has the potential of recording our feelings and responses to the world around us.

Ceramics in particular, has very durable qualities. It has the potential to last for decades, if not, centuries. I will probably not be around then, but it is reassuring to think that my fingerprints will be.

      RICHARD BAXTER

I have been a professional potter for 32 years.

I work from my studio and gallery in Leigh on Sea, Essex.

 

These latest pieces are thrown on the wheel using fine porcelain clay, which gives strength, translucency and purity of colour. I am currently investigating various ways in which the forms can be pierced and cut to achieve low relief decorative effects as well as views into the pots.

All glazes are my own, developed from extensive testing, and are fired in an electric kiln at 1220`c.

 

Recently I made some large porcelain bowls for Stella McCartney for her Hong Kong and Paris flagship stores. I also made some jugs for Heston Blumenthal for his Roman Feast Channel 4 TV show. David Chipperfield RA (architect of Turner and Hepworth Galleries) owns a bowl. I sell at the Henry Moore Institute at Perry Green, and exhibit widely in galleries in the UK and at shows such as Art In Action and Art In Clay, as well as selling throughout the world via my website. Chelmsford Museum have just acquired a large bowl of mine to show alongside their Grayson Perry piece.

 

I have sold at Bonhams of Knightsbridge and have made recreations of Leonardo da Vinci percussion instruments for the 2006 Victoria & Albert Museum Leonardo exhibition. My work often appears in magazines like BBC Good Homes, Grand Designs and Country Homes and Interiors, in books and has been featured in several television programmes.

 

This summer I have been selected for the ceramics marquee at Art In Action at Waterperry.

      DAVID BAUMFORTH

 

David Baumforth is an internationally respected painter. His paintings are for enjoyment. He paints the things and places he loves - the North Yorkshire coast, it's hinterland, and Andalucia - always striving to paint the truth. He believes that work must have intellect and be carried out with as much skill as possible, but in the end it is the viewer that must judge. He was born in York, and is self-taught. His work has been shown in many exhibitions and galleries in the UK and Europe.

"Anyone who has an eye for art, the deep passionate colour of Turner, the pure loving observations of Constable must rejoice that our century has David Baumforth. This work is ‘The real thing’, wet with sea spray we can feel, fresh with gust of wind, always mysterious, always beautiful: art to be cherished”. - Sister Wendy Beckett, Art Historian and Broadcaster

"Baumforth makes no claims for his work. Like many honest artists of skill and belief he just gets down to it and paints the places he loves to the best of his ability knowing that, in the end, the work must speak for itself. Uncomplicated and deeply moving"

David Lee, Editor of the Jackdaw, Art Critic and Broadcaster

ALISON VARLEY

Alison Varley uses a traditional 'forging' techniques to make individual and unique works of art in silver and gold. We like these at Pyramid Gallery because there is no way to reproduce these except at the hands of a time served artisan. The process is physically demanding and requires artistic talent as well as knowledge about the materials used.
