Andrew Wood Artist

I am a sculptor and this website is an introduction to my current and past work. It includes recent abstract relief sculptures made in Italy, figurative work made in England and examples of commissioned work.

I am a “Clay man” and have been modelling, moulding and baking clay since 1972. My early work was full of humour and fantasy and influential in the emergence of figurative ceramics in the 1970s. As my modelling skills developed and with the influence of frequent trips to India my work became more poetical and surreal.

In recent years I have specialised in bas relief, which is part sculpture and part picture making. This has born fruit in the current work which is unlike anything that I’ve done before. I am as excited by these brightly coloured abstract forms as when I first discovered clay 35 years ago.
