Lucy Churchill's taboo-breaking sculpture is as beautiful & finely crafted as it is confrontational. With a frank female gaze she addresses women’s sexuality and the right to body-autonomy using a visual language that is original whilst referencing diverse cultural imagery.

I create uniquely feminine sculptures in stone, bone, metals and plastics. Using both ancient hand-tool skills and cutting-edge modern technology I create startlingly original, timeless sculptures. They invite quiet contemplation and stimulate dialogue.

My fine-art practice has evolved from a 25 year career in the architectural stonecarving and memorial trade. Playing freely with my traditional carving skills I create sculptures that are fresh and tactile.

My carvings in stone and bone are often a starting point for further development. I use 3D scanning and printing to reinterpret my sculptures at different scales. These pieces become jewellery and portable artworks to inspire, soothe - raising funds and awareness for women’s rights and well-being.
