Sculpture by Zoe Singleton
Stormy Wave – Hand carved grey alabaster mounted on slate
After graduating from Goldsmiths College London, I pursued a career in textiles working for large corporate companies before running my own holiday and events business. My longstanding passion for geology led me to carving stone. Learning to carve stone felt like a natural way to express myself and the perfect link to between art and geology. My inspiration for garden sculpture usually comes from natural forms and patterns and often from rock itself, I love fossils and strata and also find inspiration in my garden.
I love to draw and have found a great relationship between the charcoal stick with which I draw and the chisel with which I carve. With garden sculpture. I like to carve boldly often experimenting with shape or texture in the design of sculptural forms, always referring to her drawings for my inspiration. My drawings are the foundation of much of my work. I love the creation of chisel marks on slate and the deep textures I apply to Bath and Portland stone.
