Biography from Summers Place Auctions:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Brendan Hesmondhalgh was educated at North East Wales Institute of Art and Design, then Edinburgh College of Art.   Brendan works primarily in ceramic and creates bold animal designs that are often mounted on ceramic plinths. 

He uses a hand-building technique that deliberately cracks the surface of the clay.  By pushing out a sheet of clay from the inside the surface breaks as it stretches.  In this way the wrinkles, texture folds can be readily incorporated into the shape.  The wet flexible clay can be pushed out from the inside to form the fullness of a belly, the line of a rib or the undulation of a muscle.

He has won numerous awards, fellowships and prizes for his work, and as his work escalates from smaller scale garden sculpture to larger scale pieces.  He has been selected for various private, public and corporate commissions.
