Top Tips for 2017 - Sculpture

Top Tips for 2017 - Sculpture

Moving from John Bunting's old studio was heart wrenching, it just felt right to be able to offer visitors a view of some really high quality modern sculpture from it. That said, the new gallery in Kirkbymoorside more than compensates with it's light and airy spaces. The three rooms offer us far more possibilities for showing off the ever changing sculptures sourced from all over the UK.

Here's a quick run through of the sculptor's we think are great buys right now, either for their value or for the stunning aesthetics they can bring to your home, office or garden. As with all our stock, home trials are offered to make sure the selected piece is right for you and if we don't have it in stock, we will do our best to get something that meets your wishes.

November sees us welcome another new potter, Chris Taylor, who plies his trade from studios in Devon. Using quite different techniques to the norm, printing, sandblasting and decals to create pots of magnitude. We love that each pot is as individual as the eventual owners and that they have an appearance of being decayed with layer upon layer of history embedded into each piece.

We have a batch of 9 pots that arrived at the end of October, one sold instantly so there are 8 to pick from ranging from £190 to £1050.

We were lucky enough to head down to Chelsea Flower Show last week and meet some of our amazing sculptors and add more to the mix for the future. It also provided a heap of inspiration for our next project, which involves the development of a private garden to show sculpture in an informal garden for private views.

This project is in the early stages but we are very hopeful that it will be fully open for next year, albeit with a lot of development ahead. We will post progress shots over the coming months as the garden develops and we select the sculpture to go on show for 2017.

2015 proved to be the year of sculpture in the gallery, with us finding new homes for more pieces than previous years. The supply has helped no end with top end sculptors asking to exhibit at the gallery and 2016 is the year we will spend more resources on bringing in more contemporary works from around the UK.

Here our a few of our picks for 2016 including a rather special new arrival!
