These tactile & charming creatures are created by Derbyshire artist Lynn Hazel. Lynn’s ‘stunning’ pieces are hand built from stoneware clays, inspired by her deep passion for British Wildlife, an expression of her fascination and love of the natural world.
Lynn’s sculptures are based from direct observation and secondary source material, using film, books & photographs in order to help her capture the essence of the creature she’s portraying – An artistic interpretation.
Lynn sculpts a wide variety of animals from amphibians, fish, birds, insects and mammals.
As well as exhibiting her sculptures Lynn also works on commissions, the most memorable one was a Lapwing, presented to Dr Arthur Edward Smith CBE MA by his lifelong friend Sir David Attenborough. Other past clients have been TV presenter, writer and conservationist Bill Oddie OBE and Artist Pollyanna Pickering.
