In the fragile moonlight she leaped out of the pool, took a breath and began her transformation.

Warrior is inspired by an image carved onto a stone font in a small Devon church. This avenging half horse half human figure looks like it has viking influence and is depicted as staving off dragon-like beasts.
We all need one of these to help us through life.

This new piece was titled Bonny white mare but as I put it together it reminded me of that Stubbs painting ‘horse frightened by lightening’. I was horse mad and fascinated by Stubbs as a child – by all those gleaming coats and wild eyes.

Shellie Byatt and Adrienne Craddock have been creating small scale artworks since becoming involved in making bronze medal sculptures for an exhibition at the Sladmore Gallery, London in November 2013.

These new works have developed from a shared interest in medieval wall reliefs, stone carvings and misericords as well as international folk art, puppets and South American retablos.
