Join my mailing list to get 10% discount on all open edition bronze sculpture.

I sculpt animals that look naturally poised, capturing their character with a tilt of the head, a quizzical look in the eye, a fluidity of movement and energy, almost ready to spring rather than a frozen snapshot of motion. A grounding in biology and understanding of anatomy inform my work with a detailed lifelike quality.

My work is cast in the UK from metals obtained from over 95% recycled sources. My home and workshop are powered using energy from 100% renewable sources and I subscribe to a scheme to offset the carbon emissions caused by my business, making it carbon neutral.

If you'd like to join my mailing list you'll get news about my work and events (in the UK) and hear about mailing list discounts. I often run promotions for advance orders to get a larger discount if you can wait for the sculpture to be made.

I’m a tiny business, it’s just me, with a little help from my lovely wife, Nancy. The work is made with love and I hope it spreads joy wherever it goes.

Geek to Geckoman! How did that happen?

I was a geek teenager, and, in the extensive menagerie I had throughout my parents house, I kept geckos... so I know these animals really well. I went on to study biology at university and increased my knowledge of the anatomy of these, and other animals. My fascination never left me, though the interest in formal study certainly did. It was inevitable that I'd return to painting and sculpting the animals I love, and I've been really lucky to be able to make a career out of it.

In 1996 my Dad took early retirement and bought a wheel and kiln, which gradually I kind of took over – Thanks Dad! The following year I decided to go for it and start in business.

Because of my work I became known as Geckoman on the craft fair circuit, first cool nickname I’d ever had! I still make the stoneware geckos that gave me the name, but things have progressed a bit over the years. I hope you get as much enjoyment out of the work as I get making it.

Cheers, John
