Valerie Price-West

We introduced the work of west Wales based ceramic artist Valerie Price-West in 2014 with her haunting sculptures of horses from World War I. She continues to experiment - first the simple horse - then a base with words - then a seated rider - followed by a standing rider and horse. Whilst riders and horses continue, Valerie has started producing head and shoulder portraits on steel posts and bases and even has her take on the unicorn! The website doesn't do them justice I'm afraid.

Valerie Price-West makes ceramic sculptures that feature combined figurative and abstract elements expressing personal poetic narratives. Known for her work relating to the sea, Valeria has come out with a new collection embracing a subject very dear to her heart.

“Since 2009 I have wanted to do a piece or a collection of work in honour of a great little horse I sadly had to put down. He was a pure bred stallion called Celtic Shadow who I met a good 20 years ago when we were looking at one of his offspring. Over the years that followed we bought five of his offspring and then miraculously managed to buy him. I think the world of all our horses but Celti was very, very special, we always felt honoured to have him living with us and everyone who met him was struck by his whole being.

This year (2014) I finally started working on this collection, I also started to think about the horses in the First World War and so the development of two bodies of work called ‘Letting Go’ series and ‘War Horse’ series. Both works are separated by the words I have put together for each piece; the ‘War Horse’ series paying homage to those forgotten heroes our equine comrades.

The ‘Letting Go’ series portrays a situation that many of us will have struggled and had to deal with and ultimately had to move on from. A heart wrenching time when you are letting go of someone dear to you. A four legged creature who you have built an unbreakable bond of trust with. To build a partnership with an animal as intelligent as the horse, who would go through fire for you because he has complete trust in you, he believed in you.”
