“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.” Carol Orwin
Carol’s work has vibrancy, anatomical integrity, excitement and a sense of fun. She works on all scales up double life sized.
Trained at St Martin’s School of Art under Sir Anthony Caro and Phillip King on the Advanced Post Graduate Sculpture course. Then worked from a studio at the Barbican. Now has a studio at her home in Guildford Surrey, where she continues to make all her own moulds from the work she models. She also does all her own casting and patination.
Her research is meticulous, her observation acute and her modelling skills direct and vibrant. Her mastery of the casting process enables her to retain complete control over the finished sculptures including surface finish and patination.
Work in collections in France, Israel, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, America, Canada, Holland, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland and Sweden.
Commissioned to model three Wolves, which were cast in Foundry Bronze for the University of Surrey campus, and a Sumatran cub and adolescent Tiger for London Zoo
