Beth Kirby's Portfolios
Both nature and the human form are captured in clay and then cold cast in bronze, iron or marble.
CONQUERED: This playful depiction of the conker evokes schoolyard game nostalgia. This is a larger version of one I first did which was featured in Country Life magazine which sold out. Available in bronze with verdigris finish on shell or in iron.
ARISTOTLE'S LANTERN: Aristotle’s Lantern is inspired by natural biological symmetry that was first drawn by Aristotle by the light of his five-sided horn lantern. Legend is that when the echinoderm (sand dollar, sea urchin) dies it dries up and five doves break away spreading peace to the world.
