The Artist - Hilary Bradt
"This is the first time I have exhibited at Delamore. Until recently I was too involved in my business as a travel writer and publisher to spend much time on sculpture, but my annual courses at West Dean College provide the tuition I need to develop this enthusiasm. I sculpt animals in a variety of media: clay, stone, wire, and forged and recycled metal. My ceramic work is figurative so I love the creative process of seeing a potential creature in discarded implements and tools and the challenge of welding and forging the metal to achieve a satisfying result".
