About the artist
Although Michael Simpson attended Staffordshire Polytechnic to study fine art it was the fabulous artistic heritage of the region which really inspired him in his craft. Simpson is a native of Stoke on Trent and as a young man was fascinated by the talented artisans of the potteries and the wares that they produced.
Capturing the character of his subjects
Simpson's highly regarded figurative bronze sculptures form a fabulous series in which he manages to capture and highlight the athleticism of the subjects, their astonishing grace and the joy of a single moment in time. You always feel that if you turned away for a few seconds the animals will have come to life, such is the character that Simpson demonstrates in his bronze artwork.
Michael Simpson models in both wax and clay preferring the freedom of the latter and the way it lends itself to spontaneity in the creative process. Few artists can claim Simpson's ability to capture the very essence of such a diverse variety of animals. His work features domestic dogs, birds of prey, British wildlife and the astonishing mammals of the African Savannah. He utilises art, photographs and his own observations to design his pieces.
