Biography

GLENYS BARTON (b 1944)

Glenys Barton was born in Stoke on Trent. She graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1971 and has been represented by Flowers Gallery since 1974. Barton has exhibited widely in Britain and abroad and her work is included in many important collections including The National Portrait Gallery, London. She is foremost a sculptor of the human form: working largely in ceramic, she focuses great attention on the surface quality of each piece, experimenting with smoked surfaces and crackled glazes, and the colour and patination of bronze. Her works range in colour from sandblasted white to pale blue, cool turquoise to deep terracotta red. Barton's sculpture is featured in the screen adaptation of Ian McEwan's 'Enduring Love 'which starred Daniel Craig, Samantha Morton and Bill Nighy, portraits of whom she was commissioned to make for the film.
