Our Sculptors

Patricia Volk FRSS

Patricia Volk’s sculptures in painted clay are playfully abstract and instinctive. Their language is one of contradictions and juxtapositions of form, line, and often vibrant colour. She uses the idea of individuality to convey the unique identity of each hand-made piece, and its relationship to others.
