Stunning ORIGINAL Wildlife Sculptures

Amazing hand crafted individual ceramic sculptures of British wildlife by Felicity Lloyd Coombes.

All of the ceramics that are made are created using a unique (and secret!) technique that has been developed by Felicity.  The method she uses involves first sculpting in wire and then moulding clay around the wire. The clay is then worked and manipulated into the form of the animal before being fired, sometimes a number of times, before the ceramic reaches her exacting standards. 

Once the animal ceramic has been completed, she will finish it with either a stain or it can be painted.

These sculptures are only available in the gallery and are not shown for sale online,

Beach Reflections On Watergate Bay

I am really inspired by the Newlyn School of Artists who worked in Cornwall in the last century. I try to capture light, texture and atmosphere in my landscapes and coastal scenes, but also concentrating on the small details, for example, giving the effect of damp seaweed on a harbour wall or reflections of clouds on wet sand.

At the age of 4 and a half, Matilda Wormwood is already a genius. Unfortunately her parents are too stupid to notice.

Matilda won the Children’s Book Award shortly after it was first published and it has continued to delight audiences ever since.

In 1966, a film version was released which has become a perennial classic.

A musical production by the Royal Shakespeare Company was created in 2010 to critical acclaim being shown in London’s West End, Broadway and subsequently touring worldwide.
