Simon Griffiths has shown with Baxters practically since we opened as I had bought pieces from him before I had the gallery. His work is always hugely sought after and it is amazing to have a collection from him again. Even more so as he has been recovering from a hip operation while making!
Media: Ceramic and reclaimed wood.
Dimensions: 20 x 31cm
Artist Bio: Simon Griffiths
Simon is a sculptor living and working in the North Pennines. As a child he spent as much time as possible in the woods and fields near his home in County Durham, exploring and drawing the creatures that lived within them, especially the animals and birds. His sculpture comes from within him, and he has spent many years experimenting with different techniques and materials. His work primarily stems from direct observation of the subject. The stylistic and constructional considerations are secondary to portraying the subject as honestly as he can. This is not to say that he strives to make his work realistic in the literal sense, instead he seeks to capture that sense of awareness that is present in all living things.
