British ceramic sculptor Elizabeth Price was trained as an art teacher but it wasnâ€™t until her forties that she finally took formal artistic training.Â She attended art school and eventually set up a home studio.Â She has exhibited solo and in group shows, undertaken installations and many individual commissions.Â In her bio she describes her work as follows:Â
â€œI mainly create figures. I love the shapes that human bodies make and the stories they tell. Using a visual language of gesture and stance â€“ for example, the tilt of a neck or the set of the shoulders â€“ I try to express a state of mind or a moment in a narrative. The results can be serious, light-hearted, ambiguous, enigmatic. Ideas either come in a flash or develop over time, prompted by people-watching, conversations, perhaps a mere phrase.â€
