Elephant by Sally Dunham. Sally has been creating realistic animal and human sculptures for the last 22 years using a mixture of porcelain and earthstone clay. The pieces are constructed as hollow objects, using no moulds or interior supports. They are built with small slabs pieced together almost like a patchwork quilt. These individual pieces can be clearly seen in the finish of the sculptures, giving a lively, distinctive and tactile surface. The challenge of creating the fine detail and realistic proportions of the subject is something that the artist enjoys. Sally’s aim is for the sense that the sculpture, be it human or animal, could suddenly come to life. Each sculpture captures a fleeting moment in time.
