Welcome to Marie Prett's Singing Soul Gallery Cranbrook


 

 

Singing Soul is the new gallery and workplace of Marie Prett, ceramic artist, specialising in figurative sculptures: cats, dogs, zebras, showgirls as well as paintings. I have been interested in art and ceramics since I was a child and the theme of animals and figures and the importance of colour originated very early on. My influences include Chagall for his bold colours and original story telling and Klimt for his beautiful use of colour and pattern. Sketching and painting alongside my sculpting, it is my constant aim to create an infusion of colour, energy and movement, humour and curiosity in each piece. Behind each smiling face or humorous pose is a person with a story.

On this website, you can find out more about me, my work, gallery and forthcoming events where my work is being displayed.

 

 The gallery is open from Tuesday to Saturday 9:30am to 4:00pm

New in the Gallery

Elaine Peto

Elaine Peto graduated from Exeter College of Art & Design in 1985, where she studied animals via livestock markets and the abattoir, using the media of photography and drawing to record the structure of the carcass. In 1986, she set up a studio and continued the study of agricultural animals. Each animal is individually made by the process of slab building in clay, i.e. rolling out a sheet of clay and forming the body, then gradually adding slab by slab to form the whole animal. The details are then remodeled until the animal is complete. It is then biscuit fired, glazed and refired to stoneware. Elaine wishes to develop other animals such as African animals and to incorporate other materials such as metals with ceramics Please contact the gallery for available work by this artist

Marie Prett

Marie's interest in the human and animal form has been there from her earliest memories of drawing and painting. It has lasted through six years of art education where every design project was given a figurative twist however 'functional' the intention.
