Clevedon based HAYLEY JONES relocated from her painting studio and gallery 4 years ago and set up a small studio in her inspirational wildlife garden. Well known for her 'flicky-flowerscapes' she has diversified into 3D Garden Wire Sculptures which have proved extremely popular. Her sculpture, mainly birds - blackbirds, robins, owls, peacocks - as well as other animals are often mounted on reclaimed tools or wood.
Karen Edward's distinctive ceramic sculptures are designed to be year round focal-points in any garden setting. Each one is hand-built in her North Somerset studio and fired to stoneware temperature, rendering it frost proof. Interesting surface textures are combined with strong, organic or abstract forms. Karen also makes a range of unique planters and wall pieces.
Having gained a BA Hons in jewellery and silversmithing in 1988 CHRIS KAMPF designed and made jewellery for three years before joining The Steelworks and then in 1993 moving to Covent Garden where 'Rex The Mouse' was created. Larger sculptures had been brewing in Chris's mind and garden sculpture was the outcome. Working from his garden studio in Martock, Somerset Chris designs garden sculpture based on natural forms. His simple interpretation of leaves and buds in steel, stand out well against a garden backdrop. His designs have 360 degree interest, while the steel surfaces reflect both sky and vegetation.
