Hello and welcome to the White Hare website.

 

I am Clive Brocklehurst and I live with my wife Caroline on the rugged North Devon Coast on the Hartland Peninsula.

 

I paint watercolour pictures, create works in glass and write my books selling them under the banner of White Hare

 

Up until Lockdown my studio was open as a gallery for eight years.

 

As we have four generations living in our house from a 21/2 year old grandaughter to her 86 year old greatgrandmother we have taken the difficult decision to close the studio-gallery and occupy it as the main living room of our house.

 

At the moment Caroline's wonderful chocolates are also on hold indefinitely.

 

As far as my art is concerned I have an enforced sabbatical due to lockdown taking the decision to look after our grandaughter whilst our daughter continues in her keywork role in agriculture.

 

I have a huge pent up creative urge to get back to painting and already have commissions for new stained glass installations.

 

More new images soon...

 

Recently I have been delighted to have my original White Hare image chosen for promotion of Seth Lakeman's celebration of the 15th Anniversary of his Freedom Fields album. If you are intrested in a signed print of the original please use the side navigation bar. The White Hare is calling...

PAINTINGS

Having a representational style my paintings are inspired by local scenery and stories of myths and legends; illustrating the images that stories create in my mind.

I started painting white hares many years ago and they have been a constant inspiration. Hares hold a siginificance in cultures throughout history and around the world.

 

Stained Glass

 

A long held passion of mine I started making stained glass panels and installations over 20 years ago. This Spring and Summer I am majoring on making stained glass items from individual panels to small decorative suncatchers featuring images inspired by nature and legend. My new White Hare logo is a stained glass panel featuring my white hare dancing in the moonlight image of my original design. It is made using nearly 40 pieces of  individually cut and ground hand blown and artglass that is all then joined with lead runs and soldered to make a timeless robust piece that hangs in any window.
