SARAH HOBLEY

SCULPTOR

 

PROFILE

I am a portrait sculptor. I live in the countryside near Salisbury. My sculptures capture a moment between the viewer and the subject or between subjects. They are fun and tactile.

I sell marble resin relief sculptures by post, via my website, or at markets and exhibitions. The subjects are close to my experience: landscapes, seascapes, dogs and horses. Marble resin creates clean, clear and powerfully restrained images.

I have been working as a sculptor for 12 years. Graduating from The Courtauld Institute of Art, I went on to work with textiles and watercolour before studying with professional sculptors and discovering the joy of clay. 

Alongside my limited edition reliefs, I accept commissions for 3-D or bas relief portrait heads of adults, children, horses and dogs to be cast in bronze or bronze resin. Please look on my website for details and to contact me.

MY ART

Each relief is sculpted initially in stoneware clay. From that relief I make a mould. Into each mould I pour mostly marble powder held in just enough clear resin to bond it. 

I take ten marble resin reliefs from each mould. The reliefs are resilient and mounted on a board in a contrasting colour with fittings for hanging on the reverse of the board.
The marble resin relief scultures below are all limited editions (10) and are sold mounted on rich red, blue or black wooden mounts to suit.
Two examples of my commissions are shown below. Please contact me via my website to discuss your ideas and requirements. Prices are particular to each commission with the starting prices for each shown below.
