Artist Chris Cudlip is a sculptor based in Southampton, specialising in classical figurative work and studio ceramics.
A skilled portrait sculptor he is available for commissions, usually working from life. If a sitter isn't available then he is able to create an accurate likeness from photographs. The end result can be either cast in bronze or fired in terracotta clay.
He is also public artist with a diverse skill base. Currently he is working on a historical relief sculpture to be sited in part of the medieval walls of Southampton. Part of his practice sometimes references enviromnmental issues, for example life-size animals recreated from recycled domestic waste and and his large scale painted woodcarvings of animals. Chris teaches figurative sculpture and ceramics at his studio and is often asked to facilitate workshops in schools and the community.
