Out of stock

ARTWORK DESCRIPTION: Stephanie Cunningham’s elegant sculpture was created response to the artist’s despair at witnessing these majestic and super skilful birds floundering and dying on Cornish beaches from Avian flu last summer. It is Stephanie’s hope that this piece can represent the spirit of so many of our beautiful sea birds who have suffered and continue to do so.

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: Stephanie Cunningham’s work is rooted in the natural world and is an expression of her deep love and respect for all animals and birds. The ceramic forms she creates are stylised to emphasise power, elegance and grace. Stephanie has a love of wild places, especially Scotland where she grew up, and of West Cornwall where she now lives and works, walking the coast paths and woodlands observing the wildlife she finds. Stephanie is self-taught, having previously worked in theatre. It was on moving to Cornwall in 1998 that she discovered a love of working in clay.
