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 Saxby's sculptures are evocative of nature: simultaneously bone-like and botanical, alluding to the undulations of the female body. By carving and manipulating the cream-white porcelain surface, Saxby generates line, shadow, volume and space, sculpting both material and the space around it. The textures and deliberate cracks within the surface are gestural, rendering a sense of captured tectonic movement in her quiet forms.


Tanis lives and works as a sculptor in Vancouver, Canada. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally and currently ships and sells her work world wide.
