About Galea Belinscaia
Based in Bradford, United Kingdom. member for 1 Year
I create individual pieces in clay, using only traditional clay sculpting techniques. Each piece takes several weeks to complete because the process involves hand shaping and modelling before natural air-drying at room temperature, then glazing, kilning, polishing and finishing. This guarantees each piece of my work is unique and will never be exactly replicated.
My influences are several, and include classical forms and shapes, tribal art, the natural and the organic world and how we might read faces. I sometimes incorporate humour, exaggeration and the grotesque into my work to offer my observations on the world around me.
I am an Associate Member of the Craft Potters’ Association and a member of the Hive creative community in Shipley, West Yorkshire. I work on my pieces full time. I am happy to consider your commission.
