porcelain figures

Eleanor Bartleman makes intriguing figures based on animal and human forms.

Her ideas are drawn from many sources - mostly from various areas of mythology, the main theme being the beast epic of Reynard the Fox.

She is interested in developing her own mythology in which different animal and human characters play out their relationships, actions and emotions.


A recent development is the making of wall pieces – where she has been able to explore the more illustrative side of her imagery.

Each piece is individually hand built and modelled in porcelain clay.
