This is me

Lucinda Brash is a unique and talented artist, creating sculpture, ceramics and other art forms.

 

With a particular focus on animals, the natural world, and humans' place in it, Lucinda's work is both evocative and thought-provoking. She creates expressive pieces that capture the essence of her subjects, and her attention to detail is truly remarkable. 

 

Lucinda's sculptures often capture a moment of connection - between species, forms, or characters, or with life itself.  They often articulate a feel or mood -  perhaps contemplative or uplifting, even fun or whimsical. Even those works that express a striving or struggle tend to have an element of hope. 

 

Lucinda's work can sometimes be read on both a literal and an existential or symbolic level.  Lucinda works in a variety of media and loves to experiment. However, she especially loves the immediacy of working with clay (which is sometimes cast into bronze, plaster, winterstone or glass).

Lucinda works mainly at FarCanal Studio in Elwood.
