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.”

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.

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 and Sweden.

Commissioned to cast three Wolves in Foundry Bronze on the University of Surrey campus, and a Sumatran cub and adolescent Tiger for London Zoo.

Awarded the Falle Fine Art Bronze prize at the Mall Galleries in 2007
In 2008 she was one of only 51artists accepted to exhibit in the new ‘Lightbox’ Gallery Woking, in the prestigious ‘Surrey Artists Open Exhibition’,
