Stunning ‘Patience Agbabi’ Vintage Man Head Sculpture By Bryan Ellery, England Circa 1990’s

‘As part of Humanity we are still individually unique, and in my portraits I love to record the special presence of each of my sitters using the shimmering beauty of bronze.’

Celebrated sculptor Bryan Ellery has travelled the world producing bronze portraits of adults, children and animals. He builds up his distinctive portraits with tiny pieces of clay, in the hope of retaining something of the abstract looseness when the portrait emerges in the seductive, surface glint of the bronze.

His sitters include celebrated scientists, ambassadors and aristocracy he sees all faces proclaiming the beauty and diversity of mankind.
Bronze portraiture has traditionally been popular with the aristocracy, and Bryan has often had the good fortune to work in their beautiful stately homes. But though some of his sitters may happen to be well known figures in society, or members of the “glitterati”, Bryan prefers to ignore their alter egos and study them as just more examples of the beauty of humanity. He is especially known for his likenesses of children, which bring out their intrinsic and unique magic.

‘Making a portrait of another human being is a great privilege for me, and it needs certain conditions. I always work from life, in a one-to-one situation with peaceful surroundings, so that my subject’s natural presence can become clear to me. It is then my job to record my impressions in the clay- a synthesis of feelings and observation.

The different ages of man present varying challenges. Best of all I love the natural life-force in a child’s being-‘trailing clouds of glory’. But then I am also fascinated by the mercurial complexity of the adolescent; sometimes tentative and faint, sometimes vividly overpowering.
Most difficult perhaps to portray is the sophisticated self-awareness, the mature beauty, and sometimes glorious pretensions of the adult. Later there is a certain relief in examining the weight of experience which is borne inescapably and tangibly by the older sitters. The light of wisdom shines through their features.’

Bryan Ellery’s first stab at portraiture was at the age of seven – a rather rude caricature in mud of his headmaster, for which he was given the cane! Having thankfully learned a little about diplomacy during the next few years he, at the age of 19, produced a bronze of the Professor of English at Exeter University, Moelwyn Merchant, which gained him general approval and several commissions and an Honours degree in English. This portrait is now in the library at Eton College.

He has always been fascinated by the human face, and it’s infinite variety, and has tried , over the years to throw his net as widely as possible in his choice of subjects, both in the age range (from fidgety one year olds to chatty nonagenarians), to the varying colours and characteristics available in humankind, and in their positions and skills in society.

Rare opportunity to own a unique piece of British History.

Michael Sutty was born in 1937. In later years after serving his time in the Army, Michael experimented with clay and for several years worked alone producing military figures. The business became established around 1962 and in November 1985 Michael Sutty Porcelain Limited had a Gallery and Sales Office at 11 Duke Street, St. James, London and a Head Office at The Porcelain Manufactory, Brick Kiln Lane, Etruria, Stoke on Trent. Later the Gallery moved into the Thomas Goode store in South Audley Street, Mayfair, London. During 1990 the Gallery moved to 62 Burlington Arcade, London and the Studio was located in a large Unit at the Glades, Festival Park, Etruria, Stoke on Trent. The Sales Catalogue of April 1990 contained around 180 Military figures and Regimental items and from the Festival Park Studio, Michael and his team which included Peter Clarke, produced a much wider range of porcelain including a series of figures from paintings by Sir William Russell Flint and a range of miniature animals. Around 1995 the Gallery moved to 15 New Bridge Street, London and the Studio to the Stoke on Trent Enterprise Centre, Shelton, Stoke on Trent. In 1999 the business then known as Michael Sutty Fine China moved the Gallery to 5 Royal Parade, Chislehurst, Kent, while the Studio and manufacturing continued in Stoke on Trent.

Over the years Michael Sutty created and produced many fine examples of famous individuals with Lord Nelson, Duke of Wellington, Captain Kelly, Winston Churchill, Napoleon Bonaparte and Lawrence of Arabia etc. Military figures representing many Regiments including the Household Division, the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers and the Royal Irish Rangers etc. and set pieces such as the raising of the Union Flag by ‘C’ Company of 40 Commando, Royal Marines at San Carlos Bay, Falklands on 21 May 1982. Michael was a fine equine sculptor and created mounted pieces representing Captain Kelly of the Life Guards engaging the Colonel of the French Curassiers at Waterloo, 1815 and a Trooper of the Royal Scots Greys fighting with Russian Hussars at Balaclava, 1854.

Michael Sutty became ill in 2001 and during October the business began to sell off the remaining stock and closed. Eve Clark was the Gallery and business face for Michael’s collectors and customers for around 30 years; it was reported in The Times newspaper that they married shortly before Michael’s death in 2003.

Iconic ‘Tulip’ Side Table By Eero Saarinen For Knoll Studio, Lovely Original Condition. Dated Sept 2014

Lovely unmolested condition.

Tabletop features beveled edge with heavy moulded cast aluminium base.

With the Pedestal Collection, Eero Saarinen vowed to eliminate the “slum of legs” found under chairs and tables with four legs. He worked first with hundreds of drawings, which were followed by ¼ scale models. Since the compelling idea was to design chairs that looked good in a room, the model furniture was set up in a scaled model room the size of a doll house.

Drawing on his early training as a sculptor, Saarinen refined his design through full scale models, endlessly modifying the shape with clay. “What interests me is when and where to use these structural plastic shapes. Probing even more deeply into different possibilities one finds many different shapes are equally logical—some ugly, some exciting, some earthbound, some soaring. The choices really become a sculptor’s choice.”

Saarinen was assisted by Don Petitt, of Knoll’s Design Development Group, who introduced several ingenious methods of model making. Together with a Knoll design research team, they worked out the problems arising in production. Full scale models became furniture and, with family and friends acting as “guinea pigs,” the furniture was tested in the dining room and living room of the Saarinen house in Bloomfield Hills.
