Mitchell House is a formally trained sculptor, a pupil of Sydney Harpley RA and Kenneth Ford. His work primarily focuses on movement in the human form and within nature. His work is seen in collections around the world and his commissioned public art pieces within the UK.

The process begins with initail drawings and observations, then modelling from life in clay. I aim to capture the stillness that is caught within the blink of an eye that activates the emotional pathways of the soul.
