Three Swimmer sculptures are raised above the ground on metal poles. Each swimmer is a nude woman - their bodies are flat and straight with their stomachs facing down and their arms and legs pointed as if diving through the water.

Swimmer | Mark Chatterley


Sculptor Mark Chatterley is interested in the dream world, the real world, and the place that exists in between. Chatterley individually creates each clay sculpture from the bottom up. Starting with an eight-inch slab of clay, Chatterley slowly builds his forms,

allowing each section to be set up before the next slab is attached. It can take him several weeks to build each figure. His bubbly and bumpy surfaces are created with a signature crater glaze that the artist has developed.
