January 2023

Hi, and thank you for taking time to look at my website. In 2023 I will be making a few changes in how I sell my art. All social media channels will be changed from Carl Philip to Carl Hodges. The shop will always be open displaying those pieces readily available to buy from me personally, and a specific page (coming soon) on letting you know where a select handful of artworks are also being displayed in local galleries. i Will be in touch soon with more development and new art...

October 2021

Carl Philip is currently showing works of art at Castle Art and the Art Studio Gallery.

May 2021

Carl Philip is planning a special solo exhibition to be held in one of Stoke-on-Trent's local towns this summer. It will be a very special event working with a local gallery and a range of new, works will be on display to view and buy. Carl Philip will be in attendance, available for a catch-up and discuss aspects of the show's artwork.

Special interest: Abstract / Local Scenes / Landscapes.

December 2020

Great news, sold two more Potteries art works through The Art Gallery / Castle Art.

If you wish to purchase an original work of art (or even a print) use the contact page and let me know which art work (including unique art number), description, size required (print), if you require the original or print framed, your location and my gallery will quote you a full price including delivery if you need it.

September 2020

I have delivered a number of new pieces to Castle Art for exhibition. Let the gallery know as more pieces are stored safely if you require a visit to view them personally alongside the super service provided by Nigel. 

February 2020

Carl Philip is displaying his latest artworks at Castle Art from February 2020. The preview evening on Wednesday 19th was super fun and great to see a wonderful turnout.

January 2020

Just updating my website (hope you like the new layout - please let me know what you think) and thought I would drop you my latest developments. After a great 'Vantage Point' art exhibition in 2019 I am now focused on producing more potteries based works of art due to high demand.

Exhibition 2019 - Vantage Point Art Show

Solo Art Exhibition - bringing together three personal subjects; my home town Stoke-on-Trent and its old factory buildings, unusual skies and astronomy. During my research I was amazed at how many different styles of factories there were including bottle-kiln ovens, chimneys, warehouses and their arrangements to each other - making each factory unique in its macro skyline. As for the skies I have experimented with fluid acrylics produced by controlling the paints in such a way as to form visually stunning pieces. The skies then flow into the immense backdrop  of our galaxy in what I all Universal roots –referring to all the building blocks of life and our planets materials including clay. It is very rewarding work in the end.
