This piece from Dorothy Collin's body of work can be seen in her lovely country setting studio. Dorothy is a self directed potter, and has been influenced by many workshops and courses taken over the years. Her focus is on functional pottery; garden pieces, bird baths, toad houses and planters. These are a combination of wheel and hand built pieces to give interest and are her inspiration.

This whimsical sculpture is a piece created by Shirley Al. Her pieces are both whimsical and sophisticated. Shirley enjoys creating sculptures as it allows her free expression, creating from her own imagination without any limits. Her wistful, poet-like heads with colourful hats and turbans, horses blessed by the fire-god, and the uncertainties and mysteries of sculpture have opened new paths of creativity for her.
