Using flowing forms to celebrate the beauty found in the natural world, Jude Tucker’s graceful sculptures stretch and curl into beguiling organic shapes. By respecting and enhancing the innate qualities of the stone, Jude captures the grounding stillness of the material. Jude uses stones ranging from creamy limestone and alabaster to the harder blues of Ancaster weatherbed, and makes good use of their subtle textures.
Jude is based in south Warwickshire. She studied stonemasonry at Bath College after which she did a postgraduate course at the City and Guilds of London Art College. In 2011 Jude was awarded the Bernard Noble Foundation Sculpture Prize. Jude now teaches stone carving in Long Marston and at residential courses in her workshop in Swanage. At present she continues to work exclusively with stone. Jude is represented by Jaggedart Gallery.
