Peter M Clarke MRBS

Having trained at Camberwell College London, in 1993 I set up my studio/workshop on a farm in Kent. Here I am surrounded by the flora and fauna from which I derive my inspiration, and I use elements that I find in nature for symbolism, form and texture. Many of the textures that I introduce into my work are derived from organic surfaces of stem, leaf or bark. I work in metals and particularly love copper because of its sensitivity to the texturing process and the range of colours obtained by applying heat or patinas. Each sculpture is unique, evolving as I draw onto the metal, then cut and hammer the piece into shape. I have exhibited widely throughout the British mainland and in Guernsey, and my sculptures have been collected by enthusiasts in Europe, New Zealand and the USA. Public artworks include sculptures for hospitals and care homes, and my work has been featured on BBC, ITV and in numerous magazines, books and colour supplements. I am a Member of the Royal Society of Sculptors.
