I live and work from my little cottage nestled at the bottom of the beautiful South Shropshire Hills on the border of Wales and England.
I make emotive mixed media sculptures using wire, foil and fabric dipped into a weatherproof textile hardener called Paverpol. They are suitable for home and garden. (Garden sculptures must be coated with varnish and left for a couple of weeks before being placed outside). Once prepared, garden sculptures should last through all weathers and for many years.
All my pieces evolve to have their own unique spirit; - this keeps the joy of making them alive and exciting. I endeavour to capture movement, dynamics, and an emotional response to my work; the tenderness between a mother and baby, or between two lovers; the dynamics of a dancing couple, the joy and energy of childhood.
I'm inspired by memories, as well as having a love of people watching - noting the dynamics, body languages and actions of people. Sometimes an idea will just pop into my head and then off I go into creating something new and exciting.
I receive many requests for one off commissions which I am happy to discuss and hopefully fulfill. October on wards gets a bit manic with orders for Christmas so if you have an idea, then please allow plenty of time!
I also run workshops in Paverpol for beginners with an optional follow on session to develop and create your own ideas.
If you are interested in any future workshops either as an individual or as a group then please get in touch. Workshops in the pipeline are on my events page.
My sculptures make great gifts for those special occasions such as weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, births and Christenings. If you have an idea in mind for a customized commission, please contact me so we can discuss the options further, I also have an etsy shop which you can find at www.etsy.com/uk/shop/Stephaniessculptures.
