The Artist - Zoe Singleton SWS

My long-standing passion for geology led me to carving stone. Learning to carve stone felt like a natural way to express myself and the perfect link to between art and geology. Inspiration for garden sculpture usually comes from natures patterns and botanical forms, sometimes from rock itself and Dartmoor where I live. My work is frequently described as "poetic and lyrical", all lettering is hand drawn as a response to the words, as a result each piece is unique. I love the creation of chisel marks and the deep textures I can apply to stone. I work only in stone sourced from the UK and Ireland such as Welsh Slate, Portland Limestone, and Kilkenny Limestone. We have beautiful stones within the UK which I like to use and explore their sculptural potential. I am very conscious of the large carbon footprint created by sourcing stone considered exotic from far flung parts of the world, as well as the working conditions of those who produce these. I exhibit widely across the UK as well as undertaking private and public commissions.
