I make uncanny stoneware animal sculptures.

“Miles’ creations are embodiments of the emotions and sensibilities that get suppressed in day to day life, the primal instincts and fears that are there just under the surface, waiting to be triggered by the slightest hint of regression. The thoughts that simmer in the semi-conscious, quietened but making sure you are aware of their presence. His quirky ceramic creatures seem to have a sinister purpose that upsets the cute conventions and expectations of the creatures.”

STUDIO: Set in the heart of Green Estate’s Manor Lodge, stepping into my studio is like stepping into Narnia, with animals being at once familiar and uncannily different. I will be demonstrating my processes by working on a large piece over the duration of the open studios. Visiting on different days will show you different stages of the process.
