Gathering Winter Fuel

an illustrated story,  is a limited edition of 100 copies price £20 each.  Each copy is signed and numbered.

“ The year is 927, and the country of Bohemia is gripped by a devastating winter. King Wenceslas is deeply disturbed by the death of his beautiful queen in childbirth. He is approached for help by a local thief, and sets out on a venture that will ultimately change the course of his life. Haunting dreams, mystical encounters, attempted murder, rescued orphans and a final reconciliation with his own infant son, make this re-telling of a traditional Christmas carol a compelling read.”

A tribute to Margot Dent


I owe so much to my  dear friend and mentor Margot Dent - the animalier sculptor living in  Broughton ,Hampshire.

Back in the sixties she lived around the corner from  my parents house, and I used to visit her when I came home for weekends.

She taught me how to make an armature  using square aluminium wire on a fixed armature support, and to use plasticene  for fine work.  When I eventually went to art school I was ahead of the  game thanks to her inspiration!  Although I stayed mainly in the realm  of the human figure, her fundamental principles applied to all subjects.
  
Margot has  taught  many of the major animalier sculptors of  today, including Mark Coreth and Phil Blacker. She still teaches a full class of devoted students , many of whom are now professional but still keep  visiting her to seek her wise counsel.

Her own work, depicting wild and domestic animals in bronze,  wood, and stone are magical and powerful, based on an unwavering knowledge of  the animal’s anatomy and character.

She  studied with John Skeaping for a while, and often  tells the story of how he once addressed a crowd of aficionados by  saying;-

“ Sculpting is easy... say you want  to make an elephant.. you just take a chunk of wood , look at it carefully and  then  take away the bits that don’t look like an elephant.....”
