Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

The beauty, touching fragility, transience and varied symbolism of iceburgs could provide a liftime of sculptures and I return to them regularily. This piece was made as my youngest son prepared to go off to Univercity, a poinient time of hope and change. Iceburgs release important nutrients into the oceans that the glaciers have collected on their descent accross the land towards the sea.
This sculpture is made of layered, high-fired clays with Glacier Porcelaine on the surface.

Artist Profile

Born: 1961

Hometown: New York

Based in: Ynyswen, Wales, UK

Raised between New York, USA and Oxford, UK, within a chaotic family of academics, I am a Sculptor by both nature and nurture, a muddy day-dreamer taught to question everything.
I recieved my Batchelor of Fine Art (Hons) from Exeter College of Art and Design, UK in 1985. As part of my studies I trained in firgure and portrait sculpture with the outstanding figurative sculptor Lloyd Lilly at the Department of Fine Art at Boston Univercity, and in Ceramics with Richard Hirsch and Chris Gustin at The Program in Artisanry, Boston Univercity, USA in 1983-4.
From there I chose a nomadic existence, collecting views and making sculpture in ceramic and parting with it on the back-roads and by-ways until 1992 when the arrival of my eldest son anchored me to the UK.
Osprey Studios was a fluid mix of Studio and Community practice until 1994 when it coalesced with the acquisition of a terrifying dragon of a kiln.
The move to the stunning and inspirational landscape of Wales in 1998, with it’s rich, ancient culture, vibrant humour and brick-making tradition has allowed Osprey Studios to establish and the work to mature.
Everything I make is unique and made directly with clay. Construction is a hands-on, visceral process. The clay and the techniques are chosen to generate active, expressive intensity that can be reflected through the permanent, finished artwork, locking the moment-to-moment inspiration and emotional engagement into the clay itself.
My new work is all about the Natural World, the constant change and our place with in it. Music is the guide.
My Sculptures are in private collections all over the world and also with the National Trust and the National Parks here in the UK. My Public work is intensely collaborative.
