Show Map

The Craft Centre and Design Gallery

City Art Gallery, The Headrow, Leeds, LS1 3AB

Collected worldwide and with examples of his work in major museums across the UK, Anthony Theakston uses the elegant shapes of birds both in movement and at rest in this collection of beautiful sculptural ceramics.  This is Anthony’s first ever solo ceramic showcase with the gallery after being involved with various group shows for the past 20 years.  His studio is a reclaimed brick and pantile purpose built building, originally a piggery and part of Holme Farm situated next to the house.  Anthony shares this with his wife, artist and sculptor Nichola Theakston.  They look out over the river Trent to one side and open farmland towards Laughton woods on the other.  Herons, pelicans, owls, wrens and bluetits are just some of the birds Anthony depicts in his beautiful collection of ceramics.  “It is important that the work lifts the spirit.  I try to make work which is beautiful to see and to touch.  It’s not just about the bird, it’s about its character and how I feel about it.
