Each sculpture starts with an idea; feeling or motif. The finished piece gradually emerges out of the relationship between artist, material and idea.
Most of Steve’s sculptures are carved in stone or wood, some are plaster. His current work explores aspects of vulnerability; in ourselves, others and the natural world.
Entering Sheriff Hutton from the South, immediately after passing "The Highwayman" Pub on your left turn right into Main Street. Continue straight on, passing the castle (remains and then pub) on your right and the road to Malton on your left.
Take left hand turn at fork, down East End. Church View is about 200 yards down on left hand side: it is a long stone Cottage with white "X" crosses, village defibrillator and finally "Church View" sign visible before the drive.
You are welcome to park on our drive, which can take 3-4 cars and is behind the house. Alternatively there is usually parking on Church End and other places around the village.
The sloping part of our drive is tarmac, while the main level area is gravel. There is a gravel slope leading to the patio and conservatory, where my sculptures will be on view. There is a small step and a threshold into the conservatory, which has double doors. There is a very low step/threshold into the Studio, which has a standard 810mm doorway.
There is a toilet available on-site close to the Studio. The toilet is small for a wheelchair user or for baby changing, but a larger ground floor bathroom can be made available if required.
Visitors will have the opportunity to add some plaster to a sculpture which will be created in Steve's studio over the two weekends. Plaster, gloves and aprons provided!
