Self taught artist Brian has managed to carve a niche for himself as an established wildlife sculptor of some thirty years. He moved to Lynton and Lynmouth in early 2000. Loving the country as he does, inspiration is taken from walks, pub life and the wildlife! The work is mostly known in the raku form - this is a type of Japanese pottery traditionally used in Japanese tea ...ceremonies, most often in the form of chawan tea bowls. It is traditionally characterised by being hand-shaped rather than thrown, fairly porous vessels, which result from low firing temperatures, lead glazes and the removal of pieces from the kiln while still glowing hot. His work also has North Devon slipware features too. Lots of Hares, dogs and farm animals are used in his work, rural characters too. His work is collected and has travelled to many countries.
