Phil Arthur

We are so lucky to be surrounded by so much wildlife in the Yorkshire Dales and Bird watching is a true favourite of mine. Phil Arthur is an Artist based in Norfolk and is also inspired by the vibrant bird life he finds on his doorstep. He is an artist we have been fortunate to work with since 2016, and his bird jugs and cups have caught the attention of many clients ever since. He creates his fascinating objects out of terracotta clay using hand thrown techniques as well as slab built elements. He then creates fine detailed drawn marks into the clay, which really capture the essence of the bird by using a technique called sgraffito. Last but not least is the process which applies the finishing touch of character to each piece, the glazing process which he often applies in realistic colour tones to each bird.

We regularly stock Phil Arthurs work and often have Owls, Kingfishers, Puffins, Kestrels and Partridges in stock, please do get in touch if you would like to see more of Phil’s work.
