About

sculpting in a cafe

Emma Elliott MRBS is a British sculptor whose central concerns are the incongruous and hypocritical aspects of humanity and the impermanence and fragility of the natural world.   In her work she explores the relationships between the refined and the primitive, the physical and the spiritual, the influences of our collective past on present behaviour.

With experimentation and craftsmanship integral to her practice, Emma works in a variety of mediums including stone carving and bronze casting. Emma believes artists have a duty to wrestle with society, its elements of rigidity and puritanism and that they are in a special position to form non verbal connections on important issues.

Recognition of her work includes the Winter Pride 2014 and Passion for Freedom 2015 awards, and her work is held in a number of prestigious public and private collections.
