Lou Hamilton

This week's guest is Clare Burnett, President of the Royal British Society of Sculptors and a practising artist. Scavenging from her surroundings she elevates the status of simple everyday objects to make pared-down, abstract sculptures placed in spaces so that we see the world around us with open eyes & a different perspective.

Host & artist, Lou Hamilton chatted with Clare as she discussed turning her back on Architecture and Law to working with a whole array of materials including household objects to create sculptures and installations. Most recently she was commissioned to design a giant outdoor sculpture in China out of stainless steel. Historically a male dominated art form, Clare has forged a path for herself and other young women artists after her, ensuring that they too get to work as sculptors on an equal footing.

In this way this Woman of Courage brings us her Story from the Edge.
