Jean Tolkovsky

I produce unique, hand built, figurative ceramics. These ’toy like’ pieces and female figures are inspired by fairy tales, novels and childhood memories. Each piece carries a loose narrative that invites interpretation and often invokes a sense of nostalgia. You will find hares, monkeys, cats and dogs, sitting on elephants, horses and anteaters. Circus characters, puppeteers and antlered ladies and beautiful female busts.  All pieces are hand built using a stoneware clay, dry glaze and under glaze colours and are often embellished with tacs and nichrome wire.

In addition you will find garden pieces such as bird baths, wall masks, and figurative sculptures.

I will also have some handmade sterling silver jewellery.
