Just had a new delivery of work from local sculptor Roy Dutton. I met Roy at some of the Craft Markets last year and thought his work would fit into the gallery really well.
His latest pieces have been inspired by the work of John Maltby - who I greatly admire too!
Roy describes his influences as the things he sees in his everyday life, and credits his work as having a simple, rustic quality to it. By avoiding over finishing the wood, he allows the natural texture to prevail. Roy has a great passion for wood, loving to work with native English timbers, mainly oak, elm and yew and often reclaimed timber, such as driftwood.
