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.

My work is often intimate and quietly sensual. By carving and manipulating the creamy white surface of the porcelain, I create line and shadow much like a painter uses a brush to put colour on a canvas. I stretch and carve the clay creating textures and form that often portray a sense of movement and communicate the fleeting impression of a “frozen” moment in time.
