Quirky animal ceramics, by Simone Louise Noble.

Simone is Diane's eldest daughter and we are both delighted, and excited, to host this exhibition of her first pieces.

Simone has this to say of her new direction -

'Having taken time out from my job as an estate manager to raise a family I found myself with too much time on my hands once my son started school.
I've always dabbled in art, mainly watercolours and whilst looking at getting back into painting I stumbled across a ceramics evening class which then led to me undertaking a part time art and design course at Cleveland college of art. The course introduced me to textiles, glass and jewellery as well as working with clay.
Now knowing clay was the direction I wanted to take I set up my own studio with kilns at home where I am embarking on a journey of self teaching, experimenting with various different clays, hand building techniques and surface decoration.
My work is largely Influenced by animals and sea life, sometimes
with a surreal twist.'

In the Wild

Our current exhibition of wildlife paintings and Limited Edition prints by Phillip Allder is proving a great success.

With subjects ranging from blue tits to leopards, Phillip's passion for animals and conservation can be seen in the  finely detailed and often dramatic compositions that come from his easel.  Wildlife art is the oldest art form known to man, and there is a direct line  from the early cave paintings to the wildlife masters of today.
Phillip has travelled extensively to study his subject matter, he believes  it’s important to “soak up” the environment as well as seeing the animal  behaving naturally. But it is back at the studio that he puts his very heart and  soul into his life’s work. Striving to show you the very best he can do...and  then some.
