Lucy Unwin works which arch and spiral sensuously echo the curves found in nature, her inspiration drawn from fossils, shells or the curves created by the human form. These beautifully perfected shapes emerge from boulders of marble to reveal the intricate veins and splits of colour inherent to the stone. The innate irregularity and roughness of the material often sitting side by side with a painstakingly highly polished shell like finish.
On her most recent creations, Lucy Unwin says
“My latest designs see the amalgamation of natural forms such as eroded sea shells and fossils, combined with the subtle curves and lines of the human body. Often plant like in their structure these organic shapes represent the ever present influences of our natural environment on the human body, be it both physical and emotional.”
Lucy was born in Suffolk and grew up in East Anglia. She studied Fine Art Sculpture at Winchester School of Art before spending time carving in Pietrasanta. Lucy has exhibited in the UK and Sweden and sold work to both public and private collections across Europe, America and the Caribbean. Her work has been exhibited in the Royal Society of Marine Artists Exhibition in 2016.
