Paul Smith Sculptures

Artists' Statement. I am a full time artist, making ceramic figurative sculptures in my studio on the edge of the Peak District National Park. The images I make are dream-like and contemplative, designed to create a feeling of a reality where peaceful co-existence is possible between us and nature. The style is bold and semi-abstract with graceful sweeping curves and simplified details. In my work I play with the conventions of fairytales and fables, often turning the stories on their heads and twisting them. Goldilocks has made peace with the bears and Red Riding Hood has grown up to be a confident femme fatale who entrances the Wolf. There are many ‘first-nation’ stories of a time when beasts could talk and the world was one, not divided into the human/animal worlds.

Oaklands Clinic

Hi my name is Michelle and I’m the principal podiatrist here at Oaklands Clinic.  I have been a podiatrist for 33 years (30 years have been spent at Oaklands Clinic) I love my job which is so rewarding being able to help so many people.  It is wonderful to see people who have hobbled into the surgery, leave with a spring in their step and a smile on their face. The practice is a multi-disciplined but is also a bit of a family affair!  My husband is the senior dental partner here and our son Ben also spends part of his summer holidays here helping out on reception when he’s home from University. As my regular patients will be aware, my passion for gardening also creeps into the surgery.  The practice usually has an orchid or two about the place which usually leads to a regular” Gardener’s question time” with many an interested patient! ...
