All of my work is unique and individually handcrafted using a mixture of Earthstone clay and porcelain. I enjoy the challenge of creating the fine detail and realistic proportions of the subject, whilst aiming for a feeling that the sculpture, be it human or animal, could suddenly come to life and move. A sense of ‘A moment in time’ captured in each piece.
Mister Herbert is a stylized figure with gangly limbs and a long face with minimal features; much of the character exudes from the body language and gestures within the positioning of the figure. Mrs. Herbert, friends and animals both mythical and real, often join Mister Herbert.
