Carol Orwin

“I am passionately interested in the muscular form, movement, and power of the animals that I model. I aim to catch their vitality, nature and personality without compromising the anatomical integrity of the sculpture.”  

I trained at St Martin’s School of Art under Sir Anthony Caro and Phillip King on the Advanced Post Graduate Sculpture course. I then worked from a studio in the Barbican, but now have a studio at my home in Guildford, Surrey, where I cast all my own work, as the process enables me to retain complete control over the finished sculptures including the surface finish and patination.

Commissions include 3 Bronze Wolves at the University of Surrey and Sumatran Tigers at NZL.

Work shown in many national gardens in England, and in countless gardens and homes, as well as in collections in France, Israel, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, America, Canada, Holland, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland and Sweden.

– Awarded the Falle Fine Art Bronze prize at the Mall Galleries.

– One of only 51 artists accepted to exhibit in the new ‘Lightbox’ Gallery Woking, in the prestigious ‘Surrey Artists Open Exhibition’.
