LOCAL artisan blacksmith Jonne Ceserani is to hold his debut sculpture exhibition at The Town Mill’s Courtyard Gallery in Lyme Regis from Friday, May 28 to Tuesday, June 3. 

The exhibition – ‘Light, Form & Movement’ – will be open from 11am to 6pm each day.

Jonne will be exhibiting two ranges of sculpture. The first is a series of figurative works in bronze, and their steel originals, bringing to life the elegance and dynamism of acrobatic form and movement.

The second series features ‘time lapse’ compilations of animal forms from dolphins to swallows to create sculptures that capture the animal’s natural movement and environment.

Uplyme-based Jonne has invested his time during the COVID lockdowns to develop his new venture CeseraniSculpture.

He said: “This has been a great opportunity for me to go back to my artistic roots and experiment with building a portfolio of bronzes. I’m looking forward to getting some public reaction to my work.”

Alongside Jonne’s work will be a display of photography by Andrew Haydon.

Dorset-based Andrew is showing black and white work reflecting the landscapes and townscapes of Dorset, together with images of wildlife taken in southern England.
