Michael James Talbot

Michael James Talbot is a figurative sculptor, born in Staffordshire. His dedication to his craft began at art school with studio pottery classes. This combined with his love of the human figure was further honed in life drawing classes. Michael combined his love of the properties of clay along with his passion for sculpting the human form and portraying its dramatic poetry.

Following his completion of a BA Hons degree in Sculpture, he gained a scholarship to the Royal Academy Schools, London for post graduate study and won the Landseer prize in 1983. He went on to further studies at The Sir Henry Doulton Sculpture school under Colin Melbourne ARCA and Dame Elizabeth Frink RA. Michael Talbot was elected a member of the Royal Society of British Sculptors in 1997.

Michael creates an original clay sculpture which he then casts into bronze, uniquely finishing and patinating each sculpture. This process allows him to enhance and refine the final image. Sculpture is wondrous in that it can be seen, touched and walked around giving the viewer pleasure, interest and intrigue from all angles.

Michael’s sculpture is in public and private collections throughout the world, including Patrick Lichfield, the former chairman of the arts council Lord Gibson and the Nat West Bank.
