Christine Pike

Fantastic creatures by Christine Pike. Chrsitine says of her sculptures, "My work is influenced by many things (I have a magpie brain and tend to collect and store ideas for later use), but chiefly it is informed by ideas and reflections upon the nature of childhood, play, half-remembered folk tales, and what it is to be human. My pieces tell stories. Sometimes light-hearted, sometimes unsettling or melancholy, I aim to capture character and a suggestion of private thoughts. With all my sculptures I try to to capture something of the wild spirit within, rather than an exact representation. Sometimes my figures disguise themselves as animals. Occasionally they are caught in the act of transformation; half human, half beast... ".

Pratima Kramer

We are delighted to be exhibiting these wonderful hand-built ceramic sculptures by Pratima Kramer of elephants & birds, with jewel-like sumptuous colours and quirky additions, and glorious textures.

We have a veritable herd here at the gallery as part of the 'Fantasic Creatures' exhibition.

Julie Fountain
Julie Fountain

Beautuful hand-crafted glass jewellery inspired by the beacj & sea by Julie Fountain, an award-winning glass artist who is showing at Obsidian for the first time.

Julie was first drawn to bead making when she came upon the glass itself, beautiful rods in gleaming jewel colours, just waiting to be melted and combined into new shapes and textures. She creates each bead by hand using a technique known as lampwork: melting and shaping rods of Italian glass in a high temperature flame, first to create the decorative components, then the beads themselves, to which she adds fine silver highlights and those intricate handmade details.
