British ceramic sculptor Elizabeth Price was trained as an art teacher but it wasn’t until her forties that she finally took formal artistic training. She attended art school and eventually set up a home studio. She has exhibited solo and in group shows, undertaken installations and many individual commissions. In her bio she describes her work as follows:
“I mainly create figures. I love the shapes that human bodies make and the stories they tell. Using a visual language of gesture and stance – for example, the tilt of a neck or the set of the shoulders – 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.”

She draws her inspiration not only from the British countryside but from folk art, folk songs and poetry as well.
