Anthony Theakston`s studio, built of reclaimed brick and pantile and originally the piggery of Holme Farm, where he lives with his wife, also an artist and sculptor.  The commute lasting each morning as much as there seconds. Their studio looks over the river Trent to one side and farmland towards Laughton woods on the other.

 

Anthony Theakston creates a range of ceramics inspired by bird form and movement.  He begins his work by drawing quick sketches from nature to capture the striking form of the animal or bird, which he then refines the drawing into a design on paper, trying not to lose the initial expressive action which rough sketches can capture.
