Stephen Smith

Working in clay, I am attempting to create a range of figures which captures a range of expressions, gestures and movements.

My first experience of clay was in the making of conventional pots, plates and containers. By chance, I was invited to take part in a small class which was using clay to create heads of a male model. Having succeeded in copying a human head for the first time, I was motivated to concentrate much more on the range of basic skills necessary to construct figures.

Most of my figures are human in shape, with some being more realistic than others. In the future, I aim to increase dramatically the size of my figures, with the eventual aim of constructing models which are greater than life-size. My inspiration comes from many sources, but in particular I like to visit galleries to witness the both work of established sculptors, but also to be inspired by up-and-coming artists.
