Tony Smither has been sculpting animal and bird forms for almost forty years.
Amongst his popular creations have been stylised fat birds, textured hens, Indian Runner ducks, lawn sheep and geese. This year he has been working on a range of foxes. All the pieces are handmade in frost-proof stoneware or bronze resin so they are equally happy inside or outdoors.
He exhibits widely across the country and is collected enthusiastically by those who appreciate the quiet humour of his work.
