Heather Jansch (1948 – 2021), was a renowned British sculptor whose lifelong passion was to achieve mastery of the equine form.
“Heather is a genius with an eye for nature that in another generation would have seen her burnt as a witch; now she is rightly considered one of our country’s finest artists. If you were to ask the visitors to Eden, ‘What is your favourite work here?’ it would be the horse, and we gave the entrance to our kingdom to this horse. Richard III, see it and weep.”

Her pioneering use of driftwood as a medium was frequently copied, but rarely rivalled.
Jansch spent many years perfecting the complex translation of her original driftwood works into bronze, establishing a technique that often made them indistinguishable from the original.
Her work is held in collections across the world.
