I work to achieve strong and simplified figurative and abstract forms in ceramic and bronze. My current works reflect the expressive power of ancient imagery from a personal and contemporary perspective.
Since moving from London to the U.S. in 1986, Elizabeth Rose has worked as a professional sculptor, showing in solo and group exhibitions in the U.S., Australia, Canada and the U.K. Recognized for her innovative works in ceramic, bronze and steel, her sculptures have been featured in the San Francisco Examiner, the Houston Chronicle, the Albuquerque Journal, the Sunset Western Garden Book and are on public display in the City Santa Fe. Her earlier works were brightly colored cut and folded steel figures, often with a kinetic element. Since 1995, Elizabeth has worked in ceramic and bronze, creating large and small-scale figures, vessels, wall-reliefs and abstract works. Presently she is developing smaller, touchable ceramic pieces reminiscent of archeological findings.
Elizabeth Rose has shown in museums and is in private and corporate collections. Her working method can be seen in the film “Spirit of Clay.” She was born in India and lives and works in Galisteo, near Santa Fe, New Mexico.
