Biography / CV of Rosie Sturgis

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.

"All my life as an artist I have asked myself: What pushes me continually to make sculpture? I have found the answer. art is an action against death. It is a denial of death. "
Jacques Lipchitz
Customer comment on 'Rainbow 1 (Curved Arched Modern abstract Carved Wooden statue)' by Liliya Pobornikova
Hi Liliya, Rainbow 1 arrived today. I can`t describe my delight, it is so truly awesome, where did you ever find such a piece of wood, and you are so skilled, creating such a unique piece. I`m not worried about the crack, it`s natural, and part of its beauty. This will be a privilege to own, and will last for so many lifetimes. Kind regards,
Mr A. Chalmers, Suffolk, United Kingdom.
