Stefan Gorski - ceramic sculpture

Post by NaomiM on November 30th 2012, 8:31 pm

Asked to research this for the charity shop, just in case it's anything special. Doesn't seem to be. Googling the name brought up another ceramic sculpture by this artist - a rider dated '71. This is dated '73 so maybe not a student.
Anyone else heard of him/her?

Yes, it's the first one that pops up on google images. There's also the same piece that pops up as an old ebay thumbnail, so presumably that's where they originally bought it on spec. I'll advise the charity to list it on ebay in the hope the same people will buy it, but I honestly can't see anyone paying more than a tenner for it.

This week I was contacted by the daughter of the sculptor of this piece, who told me something of the background to the item. I hope at some point there is an exhibition of her father's work. He deserves to be more widely known:



...My father is the artist of this sculpture, and I'm his daughter.
He died in 2008, aged 75, of cancer and I'm trying to collect some of his early works.
Unfortunately I only have one of his horse sculptures. He made so many and sold them all.

Stefan Górski was born in Poland near Gdansk, in 1932, his parents had a
farm, and thought their only child would follow in their footsteps, but
from an early age he was an artist. He finished Sopot's school of art and
went on to be a very successful young artist in his country. He had
exhibitions in London and also one in Nottingham castle museum. His
paintings are in 52 museums and private collections around the world.

My mother was the art directors secretary at Nottingham castle, and met my
father while organizing his exhibition, about 1962. It was love at first
sight, so I was told. Even though there was a language barrier, my father
used his drawings to communicate. He stayed in England, and could not
return to Poland until 1988, because of the iron curtain. By this time his
parents were dead, and I remember his stories of the difficulties he went
through, as you can imagine.

Anyway to make a long story short, they lived together making a living out
of making jewelery and ceramics. They had a shop at one time. I remember
very clearly Daddy in his studio in Lowdham at the bottom of our garden
making his great sculptures and paintings. My little sister and I were
always playing with clay. Good memories indeed.

The family moved to Ireland in 1977, and my father carried on designing and
making ceramics, but more in the line of vases, lamps, etc. It was to earn
a living. So the authentic side was lost. But a few years before he died he
begun to paint again, and these paintings are still in his studio, some
never finished. They are painted after a lifetime of experience. I've yet
to come across anything like it. I hope one day to make an exhibition of
these paintings.

My mother is still in Ireland. I live in Poland, in the village where my father was born....
...think it's good to make certain artists known, especially when they have
had an interesting life, and my father helped many people.
I only wish he was here still, and see that his artwork from long ago is coming back to find us.
