Ceramics by Hank and Kath.  6 High Road, Londonthorpe, Grantham.  Lincs.  NG31 9RU

Hank and Kath, a couple who enjoy the freedom that comes with ceramic sculpting. 

About Us

In January 2013 we moved away from the hub-ub of the city to rural Lincolnshire.  To a tiny wee hamlet called Londonthorpe, where we produce our sculptures from home surrounded by the glorious countryside and peacefulness of country living.

We met whilst studying at Stirling University, Scotland in 1994.  After discovering a common interest in ceramic arts, we set up our business.

We moved to our gallery on Trent Bridge in July '98.

Our ability in creating the pieces we do, is self taught.   We do have a combined 50 year experience in sculpting!   Learning through our mistakes (or unexpected new effects as we call them!) has led to the unique style and approach of our work.

Hank's approach to his work is filled with telling humour and character.  His pieces show expression and pose that are based from this foundation.  He also has interest in the human form and distortions that come from this.

Kath also finds her sense of humour coming out in her work.  More based on the endearing and simply stylised, she enjoys creating the local woodland and river wildlife.

As unique as our styles are, we feel they complement each other and are constantly learning from our ideas and styles.

About the Process

All our pieces are uniquely sculpted from a range of stoneware and earthenwares, terracotta and occasionally porcelain.  We also use some slip casting.  We mix our own glazes to achieve a selection of colours that complements each individual piece.  

After the sculpting is complete, each creation is fired at least twice to acquire the finish you can see.

From start to finish each piece takes approximately 4-8 weeks, depending on the waiting list. 

We believe that SapArt represents a quality that you can only get from an original.  We have, as yet, no restrictions on what we produce, from the absurd and thought-provoking pieces to the cute and endearing,   we hope to cover them all as time goes by, particularly focussing on the animal world, endangered and domestic.
Finally, we like to have fun and we hope our creations express this, but along with humour you'll see that we try to put some soul into our sculptures.
Thankyou for taking the time to view our pages.  We hope to see you back here soon.

Cheersfernow Hank and Kath.
