John Ogden – Open in 2024 – Studio19

My artwork is an eclectic mix of sculpture, painting, drawing and low relief, but the common theme is predominantly the interface between man and nature. I am drawn to the natural and organic aspects of the landscape making personal interpretations of what I observe and feel through immersion in whatever landscape I happen to be in at the time. I’m often tempted by found materials, both manmade and natural, which are all grist to the mill, enabling me to respond to my surroundings in a varied way. Of late, I have been exploring my local area here in the wonderful Waveney Valley and am fortunate enough to live next to Broome Heath which, with its exciting heathland vegetation, has been a focus of my recent paintings and drawings.









Over the past 38 years since my degree in sculpture, I have augmented my skills to include drawing, painting and low relief work through teaching at secondary school level and experimenting with these disciplines in my own work. Following my degree, but prior to teaching art, I briefly spent time as an assistant to environmental land artist, Andy Goldsworthy, which, I’m sure, has influenced me as a practising artist, always encouraging me to look to nature as my inspiration.

During the Art Trail, visitors can enjoy refreshments in our very small garden before moving on to the next studio. (In the event of inclement weather, we will endeavour to keep you dry!)


[The Studio is accessed through the white gate at the right-hand side of the house and in through our lean-to greenhouse.]

From Bungay direction: At Chicken Roundabout (A143), take the B1332/Norwich Road signed to Norwich but almost immediately (350 feet, at Smokey Joe’s), turn right onto Loddon Road. Continue 0.6 miles (crossing Station/Hollow Hill Road, passing the Village Stores) until the first possible left, turning just before the National Speed Limit sign, onto Waveney Road. Number 3 is the second of the semi-detached pair on the left.

From Hedenham direction: Follow B1332 towards Ditchingham and Bungay, which as you approach Hollow Hill Road, gently curves to the left on a slight downward slope. Verge left onto Hollow Hill Road, which is just before a “Reduce Speed Now” sign and continue for 0.3 miles. Turn left onto Loddon Road and continue for 0.4 miles turning left onto Waveney Road. Number 3 is the second of the semi-detached pair on the left.
