Buying sculpture

Price list



Jim Crockatt

My goal and great joy is to produce sculpture, furniture and turned pieces of a very individual nature, matching the unique beauty, strength and character of the wood to the specific need and taste of the customer. The timber I use is rich in colour, texture and grain and it is my job to bring out the qualities - both dramatic and subtle - to serve the material with integrity, the customer with honesty and both with respect.
Natural woodland provides its own source of wonder. Bucklebury Common, a delightful piece of woodland is near to my workshop is both an inspiration and a resource.
I have exhibited extensively in England including The Grizedale Sculpture Park in the Lake District at Liberty of Regent Street in London and more recently at The Open Studios Shaw House exhibition in 2018. I have been a member of the West Berkshire and Hampshire Open Studios Scheme for the last 20 years.
The processes involved in my furniture and turning making are meticulous. I work with an extensive collection of woods including Oak, Ash, Cherry, Beech, Walnut, Mahogany and Rosewood.
My interest in wood turning evolved after 16 years teaching Design & Technology in the state sector. I am now retired and have taken to wood turning which has, in turn evolved into sculpture.
I am the curator of this exhibition.
