A sculptor from the Moorlands is set to appear on the small screen this month.
Artist Anthony Hammond is due to appear on our television screens over the next few weeks in a new arts program to be aired on BBC One.
Anthony, a professional sculptor for over 20 years, will make his appearance on the BBC’s second series of ‘Home Is Where The Art Is’ alongside its presenter Nick Knowles.
Some of the filming for the programme took place at Arb Tree Services in Cheadle where Anthony works.
Anthony, who used to live in Cheadle and now lives in Norton Green, said: “It was great to be involved in the production of this show.
“In addition to all the filming done at the BBC’s studio in Manchester with presenter Nick Knowles, we shot loads of footage at my workplace in Cheadle.
“Nick also helped to put the artists at ease by talking through the plan before any cameras were rolling. That said, all the reactions you’ll see on screen are genuine ones.”
Filming was carried out last year over a three month period between September and November. Anthony said: “Much of the filming was dictated by the Great British weather.
“I hope that the program shows the viewer what challenges are faced by an artist when pitching for a commission.”
‘Home Is Where The Art Is’ is a BBC One daytime and BBC iplayer program that pits several
professional artists from different artistic disciplines against each other in an attempt to win a genuine arts commission.
The program will run for three weeks starting on Monday, July 6, with Anthony’s episode aired on Thursday, July 9 at 3.45pm on BBC One.
