Jude Tucker

Jude Tucker's graceful sculptures and carvings in stone depict a series of common flowers, trees and seeds. The ephemeral delicacy of her subject is underlined by its translation into an immutable form. Time is halted - a moment preserved - in the sensitively rendered works. Using a variety of different stones, Jude's intricate works which celebrate natural beauty and form. Jude Tucker trained at City and Guilds in stone carving. She is the first woman to have been commissioned to carve grotesques for St George’s Chapel in Windsor. Since then, her work has continued to evolve and her work has many aspects of stone carving from large scale garden pieces to delicate and intricate relief work and letter cutting. She has particular affinity with Alabaster carving In 2011 Jude was awarded the Bernard Noble Foundation Sculpture Prize. Her large sculpture ‘Wavespell’ was unveiled in the small medieval village of Colletta in Liguria, Italy in April 2012. ‘Wavespell’ is carved in Ancaster stone, a multi-hued limestone that is coloured with ochres, pinks and grey-blues.
