Wildlife – Ceramic Sculptures
Most of Neil Dalrymple’s life has been spent living in North Wales and Vancouver Island, British Columbia in Canada. In Wales he comes across wildlife such as badgers, otters, water voles, and many birds.
One of his favourite and most popular subjects is when Neil creates a clay sculpture of an otter with a fish in its mouth. Another favourite and relative of the otter is the badger.
