Artist Statement of Christine Close

"I have been greatly influenced by the animaliers of the early 20th century such as Bugatti and Francois Pompon. I strive to capture the essence of the animal to portray it`s character in the chosen pose. I love to experiment with new materials and sculpt female torsos using recycled car windscreens thus transforming something uniquely hard and masculine into a soft and sensuous form."

Customer comment on 'Girl with Goose (Child herding Goose sculptures statue)' by Lucy Poett
I must say I am thrilled with my `Goose Girl` by Lucy Poett. It looks charming in my garden and is greatly admired.

I will indeed have a look on your web page and see if I can be tempted again ! !

Kind Regards

Joan Gilbert, Fyfe, Scotland.
