About Nicola Ravenscroft

She harnesses and records the ephemeral essence of life in words and music, clay and bronze, producing songs and sculpture that explore the depth and spark of being alive,
that carve meaning into space,and that make a difference.
Her sculpture has a life giving presence, a peaceful stillness: her lyrics speak understanding.

Artist Statement of Nicola Ravenscroft

"Sculpture, music, architecture and song share a spatial quality... these communicative art forms carve meaning into space: they attract participation and engagement".

"The still silent presence that a sculpture offers up is mysterious, other worldly almost: it invites a peaceful involvement, a feeling... a hearing... an intuitive sensing... my sculptures become living experiences, installations singing in space. They become my friends".

"I try to harness the ephemeral essence of my subject, and then I work that particular feeling to create something beautiful... it`s a little like writing a melody, a song about someone of something".

"For me, the inherent joy of being a sculptor lies in three life giving experiences...
First, in the moment of conception,
Second, in the deep fulfilment that comes from the journey of creating something meaningful, something beautiful,
And third, in the reaction and heart response to the piece from the audience".

"It is our responsibility as citizens of the earth, to use wisely our infinite fountain of creativity. We have the ability to respond: we have flexible imaginations: now we must love".

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."

Dear Plamen and Peter,

I am please to advise you both that `Acceptance` arrived yesterday afternoon and I unwrapped her in the early hours of this morning.
She is without doubt the most beautiful item I have ever possessed.
She is not a mere statue, she is sublime and a real presence in our lives already.
