Stephanie Cushing


Stephanie has worked as a sculptor from her studio in the Cotswolds for the last twelve years. She is largely self-taught. Originally working with softer limestone, where her work was inspired by natural forms, like fruits and seeds. She then fell in love with marble and her early work explored its fluidity.  Aiming to make it appear malleable and pliable as if it has been gently coaxed and twisted into shape.

Each new piece tends to be a progression from the last and is both a challenge to herself, her skills and the marble. Stephanie works mainly in Carrara marble so that she can exploit its whiteness and investigate its translucency.  Always aiming for a beautiful perfect smooth surface that begs to be caressed and stroked.

Stephanie has exhibited nationally and her work is held in private collections in the UK and abroad. Stephanie is Curator and Exhibition Co-ordinator for the Cotswolds Sculptors Association and has successfully curated five exhibitions for them at Abbey House Gardens, Malmesbury and Berkeley Castle.
