Derrick WILSHAW

Falmouth-based sculptor working in clay: 'Clay has a skin-like quality that is important because I like a figurative element in my work.  At some point it ceases to be clay and takes on a character and personality that you endow it with...What is important for me is the historical connetion, a progression of development of forms, one relating to another.  You can have a conversation through the work, making a spiritual contact and something visual between yourself and the material you are manipulating.'
