The Maker of Rex the Mouse is Chris Kampf from Somerset. After studying Jewellery and Silversmithing in Leicester a long long time ago, he soon turned his hand to welding, producing a wide range of weird animals and larger pieces of furniture. These were all destined for Camden, where he opened a successful shop, gaining a wonderful array of local and international clients, leading to several trips abroad to work on larger projects. Moving to Covent Garden was his next move, where Chris stayed for a ten year stretch until starting a family and settling in Somerset. Since the move Rex the Mouse has spread rapidly through a network of galleries reaching as far as Scotland and Northern Ireland. No one knows what his next move will be…not even Chris.
He came across Susi Whittaker, owner of The Stani Gallery of Stony Stratford in an arts fair in Milton Keynes where they were both exhibiting and it is fair to say it was love at first sight … with Rex the Mouse that is ! As Susi says “ These metal sculptures are fun, affordable, original and perfect for any occasion. As soon as I saw them, I knew they would fit very well with the unique distinctive art on display at The Stani Gallery and they have proved to be a constant best seller since we introduced them over a year ago.”
