Joan Sharma

My early work was in wood and I aimed to work accurately from clay models to produce realistic human forms. Over the years I have moved to working mainly in stone and have enjoyed becoming freer and increasingly abstract. I start with an initial idea and then develop this directly with the stone. I enjoy the process of using hand tools to shape the bulk and find the lines, smooth curves and rough surfaces that feel “right” for the material.

I am a Member of the Birmingham Art Circle and an Associate of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists.
