Paul Day is a world renown sculptor with his public pieces marking or celebrating important people or events such as The Queen Mother, the Battle of Britian and most recently Vera Lynn.
We got to know Paul when we were in France and he had his Studio not far from us in Beaune. On our return to the UK we continue to work with Paul and use his artworks as part of our design schemes and help clients select from his wider portfolio for garden and estate installations.
In Miles's own words "My work is building strength through shape and form. Each piece holds itself in an expressive way, like tailored clothing. I’ve worked with clay for the last six years. For twenty years I’ve been designing with textiles. From designing clothing I know how the cloth fits the body and how the flow drapes the form".
In our Cirencester Showroom we have a range of representative pieces by Miles - Raku fired pieces, Tea Bowls, Beakers, Mups (not a traditional mug, not a traditional cup), Vases and Bowls along his signature 'Stand Tall' abstract figures. All telling a story, all unique, all crafted with passion and energy.
In Nick's own words "In all my pieces I try to create a rolling shape with movement, curves and contrasting hard edges. I mostly use grogged stoneware clays to achieve texture; the pieces are then sometimes left unglazed to show the clay in its natural finish. However often a glaze will be partially applied to contrast with the clay. I use several different methods for glaze application, including spraying, dipping, brushing and pouring."
In our Cirencester Showroom we have a range of representative pieces - Vases and bowls that have the tell-tale 'fingerprint' unique to Nick's work of the sea and the coast.
