Vicky Yates Ceramics

I hand build wildlife sculptures from stoneware clay which are then finished with oxides, underglazes and sometimes lustre and gold leaf. 

My inspiration comes from animals and birds around me in the beautiful Cumbrian countryside where I live. I am particularly fascinated by hares. I have  worked in Tanzania so some of my pieces have an African theme with sculptures of animals I have seen on safaris and recent work has included some African figures. 

I try to create the essence of the animal or human rather than making an exact copy and give each sculpture a personality of their own . 

Each sculpture is individually hand made and unique.
