A Slice of Yorkshire and the Bank Holiday Weekend

A Slice of Yorkshire and the Bank Holiday Weekend

Last weekend saw the opening of the much anticipated A Slice of Yorkshire exhibition. A well attended event on the Saturday marked the start of the show, with much nervousness abounding as work was delivered right up to an hour before opening!

The show will evolve as works are released to buyers on the day and we have a few surprises lined up for the coming three months. Key highlights are securing a small offering from award winning James Oughtibridge (pictured above) and new works by Brendan Hesmondhalgh who elected to withdraw from Chelsea Flower Show which resulted in his new body of work where he incorporates metal into his ceramic sculptures joining the Yorkshire exhibition.

Why Is Sculpture So Daunting?

Why Is Sculpture So Daunting?

Over the years we have been involved with the art business, sculpture has been possibly the least understood or approachable medium. We have recently sat down to consider why this might be!

Firstly the most obvious answer is the cost, making it unobtainable for many. Most art buyers will rarely consider the purchase or commissioning of a sculpture because they fear it's initial investment is beyond their means. Hopefully we can shatter this myth a little. Yes there is a lot of very expensive sculpture in the market but mostly this fits into the 'supercar' bracket. The majority is affordable, brilliantly made and potentially a sound investment in what is a whacky market.
