Dear Friends

Our first letter for the year 2020, MMXX, finds us in Pietrasanta, in beautiful Tuscany, where we are working on two great projects in both marble and bronze. 


In Asia, the new Londoner Macao Hotel, a Las Vegas Sands project has commissioned a series of sculptures from Michael, carved in white Carrara marble for one of the Pavilions of the casino.   

In Provence, in the beautiful ancient Chateau Real Martin, a Parisian based couple, vignerons and art collectors, have commissioned two large sculptures from Shona’s Guardian series to stand in their sculpture garden overlooking the vineyard.

Atelier Correns

The opening of our new Ateliers in Provence has been an amazing success. They are beautiful, peaceful spaces to create in. Sculpture, painting, drawing, maquettes and concepts fill the five floors allowing us to reconnect with work from over 40 years.  It is also wonderfully rewarding to find our visitors wandering through the spaces in their own time discovering and developing a personal connection with our art.

Summer in Provence

Over the coming European Summer we will be having some lovely events in our ateliers in Correns. If you are in the area it would be great to see you! Stay tuned for events notices! And of course, you are welcome anytime, just contact us prior to your expected arrival.
