rachel carter sculpture

An innovative award-winning international sculptor, the nature of Rachel's work is to design and create sculptural pieces for the garden or landscape setting using hand weaving with materials such as Bronze, Copper and Willow.

Trained at The University of Derby in Applied Art & Design, she mixes her love of art and design, with her passion for the garden and the environment.

Rachel's studio is on the Ducal estate of Welbeck, Nottinghamshire along with other designer/makers to create the collective group ‘Harley Studio Makers'.

Rachel’s work has been enjoyed at exhibitions and venues across the country including the prestigious RHS Chelsea Flower Show from 2010-14. Her Grand Sphere sculptures were on show in the first ever sculpture show at the Botanical Gardens in Kyiv, Ukraine.

Her current sculptural work is to develop a brand new method of creating hand woven bronze sculptures.
