My studio is at The Happy Crab Gallery 20A Gloucester street, Weymouth, Dorset, DT4 7AW and we welcome visitors! We are open 10.30am to 4.30pm Tuesday to Saturday. As well as the gallery area, we also have a small Sculpture Garden where you can see my ceramic garden sculptures surrounded by flowering plants. All the sculptures at the Happy crab Gallery are available to buy. You can also order work online, and I am currently taking orders for the life sized Badger 'Persecuted' and I am taking expressions of interest in the current piece I am working on of a Pine Marten.
The Happy Crab Gallery is now a stockists for Evolver Magazine
