We are delighted to be welcoming a very talented sculptor to our garden this season , as Lynda Hukins joins our sculptural lineup for the summer.

lyndahukins1In her own words –

The natural environment, the coastal shoreline and the beauty of the Weald countryside in Kent where she lives inspire Lynda Hukin’s work.British wildlife is her dominant theme although in recent years she has created abstract sculptures.

lyndahukins2Many of her wildlife bronzes hint at abstraction in their simplicity of form giving them a contemporary character. Lynda is drawn to the strength and movement she finds in her subjects and uses a strong definition of line to draw the eye to the sculpture and express these essential qualities.lyndahukins6

katienetley1We are delighted that Katie Netley , a ceramic story teller, will be joining us this summer to exhibit in our garden. I loved her joyful and exuberant work the first time I saw it and will hope that she will bring a sense of fun and energy to the borders this summer to complement our plantings.

Katie has a BA (Hons) in wood, metal, ceramics and plastics (material practice) from Brighton University.

Katie majored in ceramics and graduated in 2011. She has been making sculpture ever since, mainly in clay carving, and is very fond of the use of colour.

She has a small workshop in her mum’s garden along the river in Godalming.

Katie loves learning about different cultures from far and wide, along with colour and pattern to create her work.

Katie has developed a confident and honest approach towards expression, whilst playfully working through concerns such as: folklore in diverse cultures, the raw celebration of ritual, the significance of dreams, representations of organic life, geometric recurring patterns, the voluptuous female form and the liberal use of intense colour.

Katie undertakes private commissions for bespoke ceramic sculptures.
