Beth Cavener Stichter (USA)

Beth CS

Internationally renowned sculptor Beth Cavener Stichter creates large expressive animal figures by a fascinating and painstaking technique. Her powerful animal forms reflect human psychology: ‘There are primitive animal instincts lurking in our own depths’. During her demonstration she will give participants a glimpse of how one can tackle elements of gesture and expression with subtle shifts in line and form. Her unusual method of working is accessible to interested individuals at every level: working with a solid mass of clay, often over 2,000 lbs, and then hollowing each part of the sculpture down to the skin.
