It’s very rare I come across something truly remarkable and fairly unique, but Clare Tindall’s rubber/latex sculptures are brilliant.

Now and again I come across people that you instantly know have a natural and comfortable affinity with their chosen material. It shows a true craftsmen’s skill in being able to manipulate one’s chosen medium to such an extent that it does what you want it to and so therefore able to achieve remarkable things with it, such as Clare does.

I have a few of her seedling pots ( that are extremely lifelike and her sea water creatures in jars are incredible. The texture and vibrancy of the colours somehow seem natural as if you would find these creatures in the sea, but they also have a totally alien feel to them as well .

Clare has managed to link the unnatural and the natural aesthetic of her work to achieve an entertaining visual effect. It never ceases to make me smile.
