Anthony Turner

Anthony Turner’s work is a contemplation of the nourishing abundance of the natural world. Like domestic deities, Anthony’s seeds, bean pods, berries and abstract forms offer a sense of communion, paying homage to the richness of life. The interplay of stippled and smooth surfaces within his sculptures illuminate the stone’s own landscape.  

Anthony was born in Kenya in 1959 and lived on a coffee farm until he was 17. Early influences include two meticulous Kikuyu craftsmen - Charles the carpentry teacher and  Macharia  the farm carpenter. Having studied psychology at Exeter University, he worked as an assistant to the sculptor Peter Randall-Page for four years to learn stone carving and began carving his own work in 1994. With his main workshop in the  Teign Valley on the edge of Dartmoor in Devon, Anthony also works in an old cowshed in Oxfordshire.
