Artist Statement

Carly Grice is a stone sculptor creating direct carved, modern, often abstract stone sculptures that are influenced by natural and architectural forms.
Carly works with stone and the direct carving technique which involves chipping away with a mallet and chisel as the form reveals itself. She works with alabaster, sandstone and limestone to create abstract sculptures and figurative work that is inspired by her connection with people, places and things.
Her interest in carving and sculpture grew from carving wood and soft Cornish beach stone as a child and then, more directly, being introduced to the work and studio of Barbara Hepworth as a teen. An architectural career followed where the relationship between art and architecture is always explored.
Her sculptures are predominantly stone, although some works can be purchased as a bronze limited edition.
Carly is available for abstract, portrait and public sculpture commissions and architectural or design projects incorporating art.
Collaborations are welcomed. Please contact [email protected] if you would like further information.
