Ingenious sculptures perfect for a table, window or mantlepiece. Intersecting metal perfectly captures the look and spirit of these popular dog breeds - daschund, terrier and labrador. They are charming but modern, friendly yet minimal. From a talented artist who makes work ranging from large bronze comissions, to pencil portraits to these democratically priced home-friendly dog sculptures. The stylish dog lover in your life will love these special and unique, ingenious and perfectly formed creations by artist Clare Abbatt.
Clare Abbatt lives and works in Northamptonshire. Clare enjoys developing independent projects and exhibitions and the creative collaboration of working to commission.
She has a BA First Class Hons and an MA in Fine Art (University of Northampton), and a BA in English Literature (University College London).
Clare is also an associate educator at Fermynwoods Contemporary Art (reference can be viewed here) and teaches at Yardley Arts and C2C Social Action (supported by the Arts Council England).
Clay, the most basic of materials, in portrait sculpture provides the means by which a person’s likeness and character can be interpreted at that moment in their lives.
Clare's work is sometimes cast in bronze, an ancient process, which brings durability and unique aesthetic qualities. The relatively unpredictable results of raku firing contribute to the character of other pieces. Unfired earth and ash create less permanent sculptures - reflecting our transient presence.
Clare’s drawings are made both in response to a sitter and from photographs.
Clare is delighted to be taking part in portrait painter Tom Croft’s project Portraits for NHS Heroes
