    Gaining Traction, Finding Your Niche and Equestrian Sculpture with Charlie Langton

    Today on the podcast, Lucy Branch, talks to Charlie Langton who is one of the most sought-after equine artists of our time. His sculptures revels in the difference in attitude, character and physicality that sets champion racehorses apart. He has undertaken major commissions of famous racehorses including his over-life-size bronze tribute to four-time Gold Cup Winner, Yeats, in the parade ring at Ascot Racecourse. His interview is particularly interesting because his area of work is so niche, anyone who thinks that they couldn’t possibly build a business by focusing on just one thing will be proved wrong by his story.

Grant Sonnex ,

Inspiration, information and passion for sculpture

A wonderful combination of inspiration, information and passion for sculpture. As a ceramicist hungry for insight into the processes, motivations, and practicalities of life as a sculptor I was so delighted to find Lucy’s podcast. As a former BBC radio producer and presenter I am delighted to find a podcast with such heart and enthusiasm and honesty. Lucy’s ability to pull together the threads of a conversation in her summaries at the end in such a genuine and unaffected way is a delight. (Oops, repetition of “delight”, but that is the lasting impression of this podcast) It is somehow a pleasure beyond the subject matter. A connection to something deeper. Like sculpture.
