ABOUT THE ARTIST

Peter M Clarke's Copper Sculpture

Peter M Clarke MRBS, Sculptor


Peter with Vortices


The inspiration for Peter's work comes from nature, and many of the textures and finishes he introduces into his work are derived from organic surfaces of stem, leaf, pod or bark. Generally suitable for siting in soil or in water, several of Peter's outdoor pieces are finely balanced to allow for gentle movement in the wind.

Peter with Starburst

 

In 1996, Peter's Organic Forms were the public's choice for 'Best Sculpture' prize at the Mount Ephraim Sculpture Trail in Hernhill, Kent. In 2000, he created a sculpture for the gold medal-winning stand of the Kent Hardy Plant Society at the Chelsea Flower Show.

Peter M Clarke was born in London. He spent several years in the fashion industry before changing direction to study art, initially at Sir John Cass College, London, followed by a degree course at Camberwell College of Art, London.

While there, Peter was invited to create 3 sculptures for the sensory garden of a school in Walton on Thames, and this commission was to ignite a passion for designing and making garden sculpture.


Verdigris Shell Form


Peter now has a studio/workshop on a farm in Kent, surrounded by horses, hens and peacocks. Working with metals, and especially copper because of its sensitivity to the texturing process, he makes every piece by hand, either by drawing freehand directly onto the metal or by designing and working from a template. Cut shapes are heated to a temperature where the material is malleable and can be textured and hammered into shape.
