Our Family by Sally Dunham is part of Sally Dunham’s 2020 exhibition. Sally has returned to our exhibition space with her loved characters Mr. and Mrs. Herbert. Sally’s sculptures are modelled in the her distinctive style and are full of personality. Sally often includes motivational quotes and phrases to accompany her figures. These fabulous pieces display a fondness for the quotidian and remind us to appreciate the simple moments in life that make us smile.
Sally Dunham's love for art started at a young age, when she would spend hours creating models from fimo and fabric. Her first real introduction to clay came when she started Sixth Form College in Cambridge and was given a choice of media in which to specialise. As soon as she touched clay she was hooked.
Sally begun to develop her unique style during her time studying at university and has continued making in this way ever since. Working from her workshop at home in Soham, Sally enjoys creating a range of human and animal figures using her patchwork style of building with clay and occasionally mounting onto canvas.
