“I believe that my work’s greatest success is achieved if it has the power to remind people that we're losing so many of these animals and their habitat at an alarming rate and that we urgently need to do something about it.”

As a potter and sculptor John Noble-Milner became know on the craft fair circuit as Geckoman when he started in business in 1997. Geckos still remain one of his favourite subjects.

John sculpts animals that look naturally poised. Capturing their character with a tilt of the head, a quizzical look in the eye, a fluidity of movement and energy; almost ready to spring rather than a frozen snapshot of motion. A grounding in biology and understanding of anatomy inform his work with a detailed, lifelike quality.

His bronzes are cast here in the UK using metals from over 95% recycled sources. Both his home and workshop are powered by 100% renewable energy and he subscribes to a scheme to offset all unavoidable carbon emissions. All this reflects his concern for the environment and his interest in the conservation of all the amazing creatures that fascinate and inspire him.

Switch to Ecotricity & get an £80* Geckoman voucher

Nancy and I think that it is extremely important to make lifestyle choices that are ethical and environmentally sustainable. That's why we have teamed up with Ecotricity to encourage more people to switch to clean energy.

Ecotricity started supplying electricity from 100% renewable sources in 1996 - the world's first Green Electricity company! Since 2010 they've been making and supplying gas from 100% renewable sources too. They're a not-for-dividend company - the profits go back into changing the way energy is made and used in Britain. Find out more about them and how you can switch to a greener future using this link: www.ecotricity.co.uk/Geckoman

If you would like to talk to someone ring 08000 302 302 stating either the code GECKO1 or just say you heard about them through Geckoman. Once the switch is complete I'll send you an £80 Geckoman voucher. It will help me out tremendously if you contact me once you've initiated the process with an idea of what you'd like to spend it on so I can start work on that and have it ready as soon as your switch over is completed.
