Pond Life – Ceramic Sculptures
Neil Dalrymple’s garden pond has been his main inspiration for these sculptures. Here Neil gets first hand information from the frogs, toads, newts, fish and other inhabitants of the pond such as Dragonfly larvae. His amphibian ceramic sculptures have been exhibited at the Society of Wild Life Artists (SWLA) Mall Gallery, The Mall London UK.
His sculptures have also been shown at Slimbridge Wild Fowl and Wetland Trust in Gloucestershire. Neil creates sculptures to be as colourful as in nature by using stoneware underglaze stains to enhance the final work.

Toads appear in Welsh folklore e.g. Great Toad of Cors Fochno (Borth Bog) in Dyfed.
