Christine's ceramics are all hand crafted in earth stone clay being finished either by Raku or smoke firing. She has sold work widely through galleries across the UK and in Europe.
She began making animals whilst studying ceramics at Lancashire Polytechnic, which started as a study of pigs, spending time at rare breeds tents at agricultural shows.
Michael Storey Bronze Sculptures
Michael has been creating and casting his own bronze sculptures for over twenty years exibiting in galleries throughout Australia, US and the UK.
His beautifully vivid imagination and passion for wildlife enable Michael to capture each animal’s character in solid bronze.
"Many people who eventually become artists often experience difficulty in life until an outlet for their expressiveness is found. I really enjoy being in a creative environment. Of particular interest to me is the phsycological illusion ‘some how’ parted to an inanimate sample of bronze that then becomes a living breathing entity. The same applies to a flat canvas that is transformed into a spatially alive atmosphere. That ‘some how’ – is what the magic is all about."
