To Make You Smile, To Make You Ponder

An Exhibition of Sculptures by Sally Dunham



Sculptor Sally Dunham brings her ceramic sculptures to Riverside Art and Glass in Wroxham from 11th – 25th April. With sculptures that will make you smile, laugh, ponder a little about life, or make you stop and consider the beauty of animals and people that surround us, Sally’s exhibition has something for everyone.

Sally Dunham has been sculpting for 21 years, and is proud to have her work displayed nationwide. She is delighted to be exhibiting at a Norfolk gallery for the first time, bringing her ceramic and bronze free standing and wall mounted sculptures to Wroxham for two weeks in April.

At the exhibition you will find work from Sally’s two collections, these being ‘A moment with Mister Herbert’ which she first launched in 2010. This collection brings to life a simplified human character, with an intriguing long face, with the sculptures capturing everyday sayings and situations in a lighthearted way to make you smile. Each ceramic sculpture is individually handcrafted at her studio in Soham and the collection includes free standing sculptures and wall mounted designs in a range of sizes, often incorporating quotations and sometimes pictures to evoke memories of different places.

Sally’s second collection is a range of realistic, yet contemporary human and animal figures. These sculptures are constructed hollow with small pieces of clay, pieced together almost like a patchwork quilt, resulting in a lively and tactile surface. Sally aims to capture a moment in time of a situation or circumstance, with the sculptures having a sense that they could get up and move at any time.

For the exhibition in Wroxham, Sally has also been working on a range of sea themed pieces and is pleased to be able to incorporate some stunning 17th and 18th Century wood, washed up from shipwrecks and found in Wells-next-to-the-sea harbour, to set off the designs.

Sally will be at the Riverside Gallery on the preview open evening of Thursday 11th April from 5.30pm and will be giving an artist talk and slideshow about her inspirations and work on Easter Monday at 2pm.
