Sladmore has long been associated with the placing of sculpture in an outside setting, visible on horizons and in architectural spaces around the world. In this selection you will find works which epitomise each artist, showcasing both their style and their passion for the aspect of the human or creature which has called to them.

Each work is created in harmony, deploying the skills of expert founders and patinators to create a finished work which melds seamlessly into their backdrop but also provides a focus for the eye. From the impressionistic power of Coreth, to the figurative stillness and timeless modernity of Dilitz, to the unique angular planes of structures in motion of Dickens, to the distilled avian sculptural forms of Dashwood, and the internationally acclaimed equine reflections of Nic Fiddian Green, we hope this curated collection offers inspiration for the design of your own favoured space.


The pieces depicted here are examples from our artists’ wide range of monumental works.  Please contact the gallery for further details about them, or about any of the artists featured on Sladmore’s website.

Artist Spotlight

Mark Coreth

British, born 1958

Mark Coreth’s work reflects his instinctive understanding of the moods of the animals he sculpts. His success as a sculptor is borne of an acute and perceptive eye, coupled with the wealth of experience gained during his early years in Kenya and from his travels ever since to observe animals in their natural habitat. Mark’s working methods include modelling in clay direct from his subjects, live in the field; a practice which vividly translates into the fluid and impressionistic nature of his sculpture, capturing both the spirit of the animal but also that of their environment. His work ranges from small, intimate field-studies to life-size and monumental sculpture.

Geoffrey Dashwood

British, born 1947

A master sculptor of birds in bronze, Dashwood eliminates all superficial detail to attain refined forms with smooth surfaces, enhanced by the application of coloured and multi-coloured patinas. Although his work can be placed within the genre of wildlife art, Dashwood has transcended the subject matter and his bronzes are firmly established in the wider field of contemporary art.

Mario Dilitz

Austrian, born 1973

Mario Dilitz is internationally renowned for his carved sculptures of the human figure. Dilitz does not set out a narrative to his work, preferring to leave the viewer to reflect on what they see in his sculptures. Dilitz lives and works in Axams, Austria where his carving studio is based. Dilitz’s wood sculptures are made distinct with the coloured glue he uses to painstakingly join the narrow blocks of wood. The final, delicate surface, with the individual characteristics of the wood grain is what transforms of every single sculpture, even in the case of series, into a remarkable and unique masterpiece. His wood figures are made in small series of unique pieces of each subject. He also produces work in bronze in close collaboration with a foundry in Italy.

Nic Fiddian-Green

Born 1963, British

Nic Fiddian-Green has had many successful exhibitions both here and abroad in the many years the Sladmore has represented him, and whilst it is evident he still has an authentic affinity with the nineteenth and twentieth century masters also exhibited by the gallery – from Barye, Mene or Bonheur, to Bugatti, Degas and Frink, his growing international reputation testifies to the totally original and deeply involving nature of his work.
