Biography / CV of Rosie Sturgis

Rosie Sturgis`s Personal statement
For more than two decades I have been sculpting on bronze and other materials, and exhibited my work both locally and overseas. For quite some time my focus has been on wildlife sculptures in bronze, some of which have gained critical acclaim.

How it all started? Well, I joined a small, private pottery class. Of course I wanted to make a large bowl right away. I centred the huge lump of clay on the wheel, and in no time it got the wobbles and I had to cut the excess away. Now for a medium sized bowl! But it got the wobbles again, and so it went on. Spin, Wobbly, cut, spin, wobbly, cut, until I ended up with enough clay to make an egg cup. So picked up the excess clay off the floor and made a lizard. And thats how I god into sculpture.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."
Sir Roy Strong
Customer comment on 'Girl with Goose (Child herding Goose sculptures statue)' by Lucy Poett
I must say I am thrilled with my `Goose Girl` by Lucy Poett. It looks charming in my garden and is greatly admired.

I will indeed have a look on your web page and see if I can be tempted again ! !

Kind Regards

Joan Gilbert, Fyfe, Scotland.
