Anthony Theakston, who draws his inspiration from the shape and movement of birds, simplifies the birds and omits more and more details until only the essence of the animal remains. The stylized birds are reduced to a contrast between curves and angular shapes. The result is a sleek and expressive shape that beautifully reflects the bird's character. It is very important for Anthony that his work is ultimately beautiful to see and to touch. His work is recognized by many as the antiques of the future.
Anthony Theakston's work is widely acclaimed and collected in his home country, the UK, and is increasingly in demand worldwide. The ritisch Council, The Ashmolean Museum in Oxford and the Fitzwilliam Museum in Oxford, among others, own his work.
