Caffell trained at Camberwell School of Art, where he gained an Honours degree in Ceramics and 3D Design. He creates figurative sculpture (bronze & ceramic), geometric glass installations and hand-thrown pottery.
He has exhibited widely within the UK, and his work is held in private collections in Europe, the USA, South Africa and Australia. Together with his wife, Sally, he runs the Round House and Capstan Gallery in Sennen Cove.
In 2009 Caffell was selected to create a public memorial to Cornish Tin Mining. In June 2015 the large bronze resin sculpture was unveiled at The Old Town Hall in St Just. It is due to go on permanent display at Geevor later this year.
Paul Cain Smith is based in Millbrook in east Cornwall. His semi-abstract landscapes have a vibrancy which is tremendously appealing.
Listed in the 1841 Census for Kenwyn, Truro, as a 20 year old Artist living at Ferris Town and born in the County. Wood notes him as a London painter of historical and literary subjects some years later, when he exhibited at RA, BI and elsewhere.
Eddie Callis is a young 'outsider' artist on the autistic spectrum whose work includes landscapes, life drawing, portraits and ceramics. He works from KROWJI Studios, Redruth.
A long-time house painter and decorator with a difference, Callow, honing his considerable skills on life-size buildings in London and elsewhere (including a 2-year stint working on No 10, Downing Street), developed his architectural artistry by turning to landscape, cityscape and fascias in miniature. The miniature fascias are of buildings, barns, houses of international design including Shaker houses, New England and Mid-West American barns, as well as historic Bath frontages (Royal Crescent) and paintings of the Thames landscapes at evening and at dawn.
His pen, charcoal and pencil drawings are free-forms of geometric and technological features which ask complex questions of the viewer.
In 2007, Callow collaborated on the construction and decorative execution of the Dwellings Bookcase, working with the author Melissa HARDIE to create an installation work for the 'Exquisite Trove' exhibition at NAG (July-October, 2010). His studio is located in Redruth, Cornwall.
Calver, born in Kent, trained at St Martins and Winchester Schools of Art. His work has developed out of a concern with the affective and spatial qualities of colour. At first, reductive means were used to obtain a clear minimalist aesthetic. More recently, his work has shown a more complex use of shape and form. These elements have evolved, in a subterranean way, from his regular use of a sketchbook to draw directly from the localities in which he finds himself. In his artist's statement reproduced here he states that this is a practice that sharpens his attentiveness.
In 2003 and 2005 Calver was awarded 'Grants for the Arts' by the Arts Council England, and in 2007 he was in receipt of a Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant.
He has exhibited widely in the UK and also in Germany and Dubai. Print, paintings and drawings have been exhibited recently at The Exchange in Penzance and at the artist led Bucca Gallery in Newlyn.
A painter of semi-abstract works on canvas, Susan Camburn works from a studio in Falmouth.
