The work Mel is exhibiting was developed specifically for on form 20 and seeks to explore the idea of elemental creation: fire, ice and storm. Working with both abstract and figurative forms, she explores the way in which light influences our perception of stone surfaces.
A moment to let the mind go free. To explore. Here there are no boundaries to confine the process that when fuelled becomes a ball of fire. A force that knows no limits.
Mel is a self-taught sculptor and has worked in studios in and around Cambridge for over twenty years. She has also worked in Carrara and Pietrasanta in Italy, and Kilkenny in Ireland, and she has collaborated with members of the Zimbabwean Shona tribe.
