The 2017 season has opened, and I have been hard at work during the winter preparing colourful tulips, shoals of leaping fish, flocks of chickens and braces of pheasants, amongst other new pieces. Pashley Manor gardens are already open (see the Events and Exhibitions page for more details), as is Delamore in Devon from May 1st for the whole month. Their gardens are looking particularly good this year in the bright spring sunshine, and they have rebuilt and refurbished their lake, which makes a sparkling setting for my fish. My giraffe stands just inside the gate to welcome visitors, and I have made extra tulips this year - normally only seen at Pashley - so that Delamore's Devonian visitors will have the chance to enjoy, and hopefully buy, some.
Also this year for the first time I'm exhibiting at the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens at Romsey in Hampshire for their Art in the Garden exhibition, from May 13th to October 15th. They are open every day from 10am - 6pm. I shall post some pictures and more details nearer the date, but the woodpeckers look absolutely stunning!
Later in the summer I shall have a generous menagerie at Sussex Prairie Gardens, from June 1st through to October 16th. They are open on Wednesdays through to Monday in the afternoons, and they have very good tea rooms with home-made cakes. Their Plant and Art Fair this year will be on Sunday September 3rd, 11am - 5pm.
See the New Sculptures page for my latest Curlew.
Have you seen the little piggies?
They were to be seen at the RHS Rosemoor Winter Sculpture Exhibition, Great Torrington, in North Devon, from November 19th to February 19th 2017. It offers 65 acres of gardens, and the sculptures add interest when the summer flowers are quiet. There are pictures of my other pieces there on the PAST EXHIBITIONS page of this website.
The winter exhibition has now closed; but you can still see my woodpecker there, right in front of the big house. The RHS management decided to buy it for permanent exhibition there, which is a compliment I very much appreciate.
Galleries and Gardens
I have re-activated my presence with a new exhibition at the Fire and Iron Gallery, Leatherhead. It really looks good - a large exhibition space in a magnificent barn conversion.
I am continuing to exhibit in a VERY good gallery in Deal, which if you are in the area is well worth a look. It is: Dunlin and Diver at 112 High Street, Deal, Kent, CT14 6EE. It has an inspiring range of contemporary arts and crafts, with a particular focus on Kentish designed and created pieces. See the Exhibitions page for more details including all the other places where Copper Creatures may be seen.
Note: pictures and prices shown on the Website
The pictures of sculptures shown in the Gallery are usually the first example of a new design, and the price shown is a guide to what that piece would cost. Each piece, however, is an individual work in its own right, and subsequent examples of any design may vary as ideas develop. Therefore the pictures and the prices shown should be taken, as they are labelled, as a guide. See 'Prices and Designs' page for a fuller explanation.
