  I am primarily a sculptor, but also paint on paper. My works are abstract, but draw inspiration from the shapes and colours of the landscape. My sculptures are usually painted steel or wood. My aim is to ‘please the eye and feed the soul’. I exhibit regularly with Surrey Sculpture Society and AppArt shows. I have exhibited works at the Eton College Gallery, Royal Academy, Globe Gallery: Weybridge, Cranleigh Threes, and various competitions including Light Box Open, London Group Open. For the month of March 2014 I held a one man show of paintings and sculptures in the Robert Phillips...

  Immortalising The Timeless Beauty of Wood Inspired by the beautiful landscape of trees in the English county of Surrey, Roger Day has been working as an artist for over 25 years. His early work involved emulating beautiful patterns found in nature, materialising in ceramic studies of stone, wood and bark, producing intricate pieces of abstract landscape sculpture. Later working as a forester with many highly skilled craftsmen, Roger acquired the skills required to create the large scale oak sculptures he produces today. This work aims to immortalise the largest organisms on land, and...

  Sculpting in metal, primarily in bronze, forged steel, stainless steel, and aluminium has been a passion of Mark’s since 1995. Mark Reed’s sculptures are deeply rooted in themes of nature and his place within it, science, family and the passage of time. He works predominantly in metal, casting the bronzes himself and physically shaping the forged steel which is transformed often from the original concept as he sculpts- a cipher for memories and emotions that are both personal and universal. Raised on his family’s fruit farm in Norfolk, England ‘the essential arts of observation of the...

Christina’s artistic practice is predominatly sculpture. She was born in Somerset, England in 1979, and lives in London. Her work explores a translation of the processes and vocabulary of geology into sculptural form: canyons, rivers, rocks, waves, erosion, shifting, weathering, force. Landscapes that influence her work are dramatic, shaped by powerful forces of nature over time. Her interest in the natural world extends to representing plant life; creating flowers and grasses in metal. Christina aims to bring together her love of nature and questions around our relationship with the...

Posted by on Aug 16, 2012 in Abstract, Animal, Artists, Bronze, Figurative, Metal, Resin

Teresa Martin develops original abstract forms, combining her casting experience with a desire to extend this process, exploring positive and negative textures and new uses of materials. Their uniqueness comes partly from the complex process forming them. She doesn’t believe in making life easy for herself, relishes a challenge and desires to take her work further into the unknown. When in an alternative mood, she also creates works inspired by animal textures and forms as seen in their environment. Going beyond the realism of the animal’s presence she expresses more aspects of their...

MA Fine Art (Chelsea) I am a conceptual artist and my territory is movement, sound and light with particular interest in interactivity and random. Every artwork, that I make, is unique. Being a conceptual artist means that each work is an invention. The work shown in the image is neither interactive nor does it have a random element and ,in that respect, is not typical of my work. The hammer slowly rises up, taking about nine minutes to reach the near vertical. It then falls onto the nail. Bill lives in Worcester Park Tel: 01483 898054 e-mail: Bill Urmenyi Website:...

I trained and worked as a stained glass maker in my native Hungary. I moved to the U.K. in 2008 and started to create contemporary glass art in 2D and 3D. I enjoy experimenting with new ideas and developing technical solutions. I love sharp contrasts and enjoy stepping away from glass as the primary medium and combine it with other media, such as metal and ceramic. I am lucky to be renting a studio in a marvellous garden in Buckland, Surrey which helps me clear my mind and inspires me to create. The sea, especially where the water runs into land is another important source of inspiration for...
