Brendan is a British contemporary figurative sculptor, best known for his unique handmade ceramic sculptures of animals. Using slabs of clay, he wraps, layers and controls the medium to create one-off pieces that capture elements of character, form and movement of each individual creature. Capturing the dynamic nature of his subject, and focusing upon structure, movement and character, Hesmondhalgh creates sculptural works that encapsulate and embody the essence and spirit in inimitable style. Directional and textural marks are included to enhance each form. Sculptures vary in stature with limited edition miniature collections produced through to those with monumental dimensions.
