Tactile sculptures of birds and animals in ceramics, wood and stone. Inspired by the widlife and environment of Cornwall

Reece briefly worked as a taxidermist before studying Sculpture at Brighton College of Art in 1985 and then completing an MA in Site Specific Sculpture at Wimbledon School of Art.

His interests are in form, mass, weight, material, the tactile nature of objects and above all animals and birds. All his earliest memories are of the wildlife in Zambia where he lived with his family as a small child.

His practice is very varied, working on commissions, as an artist in schools and communities, teaching and his own private work. The common theme is trying to communicate and share a joy of looking at the natural world and making and engaging with materials.

Recently he has become fascinated by Palaeolithic images. There is something absolutely vital about them and the mark making. It has become a significant influence on his work.

Living in Cornwall, by the River Fal , is a constant source of inspiration and joy.
At the moment he combines making Sculpture with teaching Ceramics at Truro College.

Reece has been commissioned to make sculpture for many public spaces through out the country . Most notably the Princess Diana Memorial Play ground in London, Grizedale Forest and the Eden Project. He made seven sheep for the Horse Trials at the 2012 Olympics .
