9 Collectible Artists for the Year Ahead

It's been a while since we sat down and worked out who is good to collect and maybe bring some much needed positivity to your life and net worth! We scan the shelves and add a few that are soon to join the gallery. We would love your feedback too!


Sculpture

Philip Wakeham - Fragment of Embrace

Philip Wakeham - Fragment of Embrace

Philip Wakeham is one of top tips for the 21st Century! His bronze works are forged in his own studio allowing Philip to make one off sculptures of the highest standard. His work continues to grow in quality, subject and form rewarding the owners for many years to come. From £400 to plenty!

Samantha Bryan and her fairies have long been on our radar. Now we are delighted to announce they will be with us at Cambridge Art Fair and thereafter in the gallery! No home should be without one of her special creations.


Chiu-i Wu - Harmless Creature with Curly Tail

Chiu-i Wu - Harmless Creature with Curly Tail

We have worked with Chiu-i for a few years now and never been disappointed by her fun ceramic sculptures. Hand-built using the coil method, each piece has a unique, heart-warming character. Her works never last long in the gallery and she more often than not sells out at the shows she attends around the country.


Paintings

Veronique Paquereau - Mixed Media Paintings

Veronique Paquereau - Mixed Media Paintings

We found Veronique on the internet earlier this year. We purchased a piece for our own collection and decided it was of such a standard we would invite her to work with us in the future. We will be bringing several of her mixed media paintings that have printing techniques to Cambridge Art Fair and will have her work on a regular basis in the gallery after that. We are genuinely really exciting to be showing her novel work that has it's root in her family's print making business.


Graham Davis - Zethar Onan

Graham Davis - Zethar Onan

We have a strong attraction to artists from the South West and Graham is not exception. His moody seascapes have more than a hint of Turner but also show clear links to the more modern Kurt Jackson. We have several new works arriving in July.


Rick Young - Head Study IV

Rick Young - Head Study IV

Simon Gudgeon introduced us to the wonderful works of Rick Young. Based in the USA, Rick produces fine drawings in charcoal and stunning encaustic works. We are delighted to have a handful of his charcoal works in the gallery now and will be bringing more of his work to the UK in the near future.


Ceramics

Albert Montserrat - Large Vessels

Albert Montserrat - Large Vessels

We can't get enough of Albert's large porcelain vessels. Over 40 have left the gallery in the last few months and this has led to a series of small price rises. The next batch will arrive in time for Cambridge Art Fair and will be priced at £420. This represents stunning value for pots that measure nearly two foot tall. Albert's Catalan roots and European influences are easy to see in his work yet each is very definitely his work with his unique fingerprint. Porcelain Perfection!

Richard Heeley - Saucepans - £65-95

Richard Heeley - Saucepans - £65-95

Classically British with Oriental Roots, Richard's stunning tea ceremony inspired works are a joy to own or as presents if you can let yourself give them away! Richard's attention to detail, Japanese techniques and specialist glazing make a complete package and no collection is complete without a few pieces!


Stephen Murfitt - Large Round White Raku Vessel

Stephen Murfitt - Large Round White Raku Vessel

Stephen is a legend in the raku world, producing large scale pieces many wouldn't dare to approach. His glazing is worthy of note too along with the textured services that are becoming more and more a part of his latest works. The works are always much admired and can be a great centre-piece in any home.


Obviously this is a shallow selection of makers we currnently work with or will be shortly. There are many more out there that we haven't found yet. Kate and I strive to bring new and exciting work to both the gallery and art fairs around the country.
