The Work

"Smooth and sensitive, Saxby's sculptures evoke sensuality, a burning desire, a flame, which will go on for eternity." Angie Nordic. Widewalls Art Magazine, Italy/U.K.

Tanis' materials take on meaning for her as a woman and ultimately as a human. Her work often carries relational and/or erotic associations that suggest rather than represent the female body. By carving and manipulating the surface of white porcelain, she creates line and shadow much like a painter might use brush to put colour on a canvas.


Tanis lives and works as a sculptor in Vancouver, Canada. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally and is represented in London, England by Belgravia Gallery ( She currently ships and sells her work world wide.
