Sculptor Rob Fogell, inspired by Kettle's Yard in Cambridge and Jim Ede's energy and commitment there, opens an art gallery in the front room of his home
For years Rob has made a living restoring sculpture at country houses and museums as well as teaching art and design to college students. But his real ambition has long been to devote more time to his craft and he and his wife, Diane, have been searching for the ideal property in which they can live and display his artwork.
Rob uses a variety of materials including stone, steel, bronze, ceramic and plaster to create his abstract works, drawing inspiration from the forms and patterns of the natural world.
A number of his pieces are on sale at the gallery, which also displays 20th Century British Art including artists such as Ben Nicholson and John Piper as well as handmade arts and crafts from around the region.
Rob also runs specialist courses at Burghley House in Stamford.
