What is it about animals that we love so much?
At Tree Gallery, we have many artists who use animals as inspiration for their work; from decorative illustrations on mugs and plates, the infamous bird urns, as well as quirky sculptures.
We recently acquired Katherine Smyth Polar Bear and Rat urns that go nicely with our Steve Fullmer Polar Bear mugs and bowls! Angela Tier has dropped off some Black Robin urns to nest alongside the remaining doves, and Janet Green's cat sits proudly in our window looking out upon people in the street like an actual cat.
Aaron Scythe uses little birds too; on all his ceramics (if you hadn't noticed), he says that the little bird is him when we asked him once, which is such a lovely trademark touch by this talented potter!
Jane Kennington also uses bird illustrations on her pinched vases and cups; sometimes accompanied by a feminine friend, and Angela also makes beautiful ceramic bird brooches and cast glass bird pendants that are to be worn to remember wonderful memories of loved ones who have passed.
We look forward to showing you all of these pieces when you visit the Tree Gallery, and also any new pets we aquire in the coming months!
