This exhibition has been postponed due to our temporary closure.
We will update you with new dates in due course and look forward to welcoming you to the exhibition when it is safe to re-open.
30 MARCH – 19 APRIL
Sally has made models since she was a child. Inspired by the maxim ‘the figure is in there, you just have to discover it’, her current ‘patchwork’ style began to emerge whilst studying at the University of Wolverhampton.
Each sculpture is individually handcrafted using a mixture of earth stone and porcelain clay. Small slabs are pieced together to create a hollow form.
Sally’s intention is to capture a moment in time experienced by ordinary people, without becoming involved with ‘complex human politics’. Her stunning collections include A moment with Mister and Mrs Herbert as well animals and sea creatures. She captures wildlife in a natural pose that best reflects the character of the species. The construction and surface technique enhance the sense of the animal skin and feeling of movement.
Sally’s recent work features pieces of shipwrecked timber from the wreck of the sailing vessel ‘Hickham’ which founded at Wells harbor during the great storm of 1880.
Sally says: ‘Many of the pieces have a thought-provoking sentiment; perhaps to make you reflect, or as a reminder to look for the positives when life throws its challenging days. I hope you find a piece that makes you smile’.
Visitiors to the exhibition will have the opportunity to meet Sally on Saturday 18 April between 12 – 3 pm at Riverside Art and Glass.
