Graeme Foote character jug produced by Graeme Foote of Melbourne, Australia, circa 2000. Graeme Foote has been a sculptor since the 1970s when he started an apprenticeship as a stonemason then transferred his career to jeweller and silversmith, which he pursued for 15 years. In 1984 he started a business with his wife, Angela, called 'Gargoyles & Dragons' where he was a successful Architectural Sculptor working in terra cotta, stoneware and bronze helping replacing Melbourne's heritage. In 1998 he established Surrey Sculpture Studio where he led a team of five artists sculpting one off pieces and commission work. In 2009 Graeme focused on his own art work in ceramic sculpture and set up Hawthorn Studio. Over the years he has made commission pieces for clients' private collections in Australia, USA, UK, Japan, Canada, China and France.
