For many years now Carolyn Metcalfe has lived and worked across the road from a breeding colony of water birds (one of Montagu's well-known landmarks) and she has observed, been involved with and come to love the Sacred Ibis. Given their beauty and grace, their significance in mythology and her love for them, Ibis Gallery seemed the inevitable and not at all prosaic choice.
Ceramics: "I work exclusively in earthenware, producing large, richly decorated maiolica bowls, crosses, also garden pots and rustic terracotta cooking ware as well as Provencal style pottery. I hand throw and decorate everything myself". Art: Paintings in oils, water colours and drawings. Subjects are landscapes, still life, animal studies and portraits. I accept commissions for the latter.”
