Nick Mackman creates a range of stunning lifelike animal sculptures in ceramics, her style of work is often copied, but her quality is never bettered. Nick's aim is to get under the skin of the animals she sculpts, giving each piece a personality of its own - a feat she seems to effortlessly achieve time and time again. Many of her subjects are highly endangered, and in depicting them she seeks to enlighten us to their beauty, humour, tenderness and delicate place in our world.
Most of Nick’s animal sculptures are Raku fired, giving a rich but natural looking crackle glaze. Her studio is based in Devon, in South West England, where she lives with her husband, twin children and two dogs.
In commissioning Nick you can have you very own animal sculpture made to your exact requirements, deciding everything from size and posture, all the way down to what style you would like it finished in. The process for commissioning is very easy, and we will be on-hand to help you through the whole process.
