Hello and welcome to my 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

 

 

 

The White Hare Calendar for 2019

Now available is a new calendar featuring 12 new hare illustrations with accompanying text. The Calendar is inspired by the traditional festivals of the seasons, equinoxes amd solstices. Each month has a brief explanation of the illustration and the significance of the festivals.

Also contained in a section at the rear is a review of the secret riddle and puzzle contained within the illustrations. If you can solve the puzzle and email me the correct answer then you will be entered into a draw for an original artwork.

Individual Stained Glass Horseshoes

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 he 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.
