Seagull Automaton September 27 2019
Purple Gallery has recently received some unique metal sculptures from Whittle Design - one of which is a wonderful Seagull Automaton which is great fun to operate!
Husband and wife team Kerry and Tilly Whittle, work together from their small studio in the Cornish countryside. They work with bronze and steel using heating, welding, forging and texturing effects that are only possible using low volume hand production techniques. These techniques offer the opportunity to create unique, bespoke, individual pieces during the manufacturing process.
Whittle Design produce many hand made items for the National Trusts' Art Studio range and also supply galleries all around the U.K. Kerry is a part time lecturer in Design at the University of Plymouth.
