Christine Pike Sculpture

City: Downham Market
Region: East of England

My work is figurative and is inspired by folklore and the natural world. I make mostly archetypal nature goddesses and protective spirits, and whimsical/satirical animal figures. My pieces range from the miniature to around 40 cm in height.

I use environmentally responsible materials; chiefly non-fire paperclay, recycled materials, and found/natural objects.

All my sculptures are one-of-a-kind pieces.

Paperclay is a lightweight, durable material that will last indefinitely so long as a certain amount of care is taken to protect it. The work is sealed and waxed to create a durable surface layer. However, as with any product whose chief ingredient is paper it should be protected from damp or wet conditions. Treat it in the same way you would a painting.
