Artist Statement of Timothy Carter

Tim Carter`s Statement
‘Glass is the compelling, principal material in my work; it is enhanced by combining it with other materials, such as stainless steel, steel or slate.

My interest lies in the refractive, reflective and structural properties of glass; how it can be manipulated and decorated to affect the passage of light and colour through it.

The work is formed using a wide variety of techniques and processes, to produce a range of work, which is both sculptural and functional, with an emphasis on design, geometry and construction.’

Reviews of work by Timothy Carter

”Tim Carter is a highly professional restorer of traditional leaded light windows (amongst other talents). He has undertaken a great deal of work over many years at Rockingham Castle. He has become a trusted contractor, carrying out work of a delicate and sensitive nature to windows of great antiquity. He is very thorough and conscientious, and I cannot recommend his skill highly enough.”

Andrew Norman, Operations Manager, Rockingham Castle.

Rolls-Royce Science Prize / Eden Project Environment Award.
“We approached Tim with a problem and some ideas when we required a trophy to be produced for presentation at a prestigious company event. Throughout the process, Tim was positive and supportive, his experience and skills really making a difference. Tim mixed materials and disciplines to produce a unique piece, delivered on time to a tight schedule. Needless to say the finished article was stunning. ”

Dean Wright, Civil Airlines Operations, Rolls-Royce Plc.

Customer comment on 'Egret on Alert (Standing Water Bird Wader sculpture)' by Kenneth Potts
Ken, Peter

Thank you both, and especially of course Ken, for your trouble over the
egret sculpture. I am very glad to say that it is now installed in our
garden, and we are delighted with it. Lucy has decided it should be called
Elgar, in memory of the work you are currently doing, Ken.

I attach a couple of pictures showing Elgar the Egret on his stand and in
his setting above the rockery by the pond.
