Wildlife sculptor Elliot Channer is displaying his latest work at Thompson's Gallery in Harpenden.

Elliot has been a professional wildlife sculptor since 2013, having studied at the City & Guilds of London Art School.

The main focus of his art is creating life-sized birds, sculpted in clay and cast in bronze - a process which takes between six and eight weeks to complete.

His work has previously been exhibited at the Chelsea Flower Show and the Doha Garden Expo.

Elliot said: "My aim is to capture the elegance and movement of the subject in instinctive mark making and a focus on form and shape. 

"It is a privilege to be showing several of my latest sculptures, including my peregrine falcon and wren, at the gallery."


Harpenden welcomed the latest of Thompson's three galleries in 2021 - along with other locations in London and Aldeburgh.

Specialising in contemporary 20th and 21st century paintings, sculpture and photography, Thompson's has displayed work by renowned artists including Dame Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore.

Thompson's Gallery is at 13, Church Green, Harpenden, and is open from 10am to 5.30pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and from 10am to 5pm on Saturdays.
