Artist returns to his roots


A new exhibition will be staged at the Harley Gallery, Welbeck, by one of its resident artists.

Steve Handley, based in Nottingham, has spent the last year creating new sculpture and ceramics for his first solo exhibition in more than 20 years.

The work, entitled Altared Landscapes, runs from Sunday (Sept 6) to October 18, and is a return to his roots. Steve originally trained in fine art in the 1960s, later teaching in ceramics and sculpture before setting up a successful business making furniture.

He is well-known for his chairs, dressers, tables and little cupboards, which are made from reclaimed timber and vintage objects.

Steve said: “This exhibition marks a rebirth in my own creative journey. The change of direction began when I saw Turner Prize winner Grayson Perry’s show, The Charms Of Lincolnshire in 2007.

“It inspired and touched me in so many ways.”
