Jill Clarke creates artistic metalwork and sculpture for outdoor spaces. With her family, she runs a bespoke design service for organic sculptures and made-to-order items including planters, fire pits and screens. Jill uses metal to create works that tell stories, especially human ones such as overcoming adversity or being true to ourselves through mindfulness.
Jill Clarke’s trade stand at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show 2018 received the prestigious Royal Horticultural Society’s ‘5 Star award’. The stand featured Jill’s corten sculptures ‘Resilience’, ‘Flow’ and ‘Balance’ amidst planting from Hortus Loci and was a background for a Gardeners’ World segment from radio personality and keen gardener Jo Whiley, which is where the duo met and formed a friendship.
In April 2019, Jill will install a series of works in the new Sculpture Garden at Porthilly Gallery.
