Jonathan Hateley

Jonathan lives and works from his studio in Kent, his work has been exhibited widely
both in the UK and internationally.
Having created props for the musical “The Phantom of the Opera” and the English
Nation Opera, Jonathan spent many years sculpting for models and effects in TV
and film and illustrating children’s’ books. In 2003 he began creating his own work,
thus turning his passion into a career. One of his earliest commissions was
undertaken for Kent County Council, creating three sculptures for new schools.
All aspects of the natural world inspire him. Working in clay, he enjoys the challenge
of creating from both the real and imagined. Through his close observation and
manipulation of material, Jonathan creates detail and texture or surface bas-relief on
his work, which are often hand finished in acrylic colour to add individuality and
accentuate the relief.
Jonathan is currently working on a series of stylised human figures, sinuously
graceful often with an element of dance, he employs his own uniquely interpretive
style to create an inspiring body of work.
