This artist accepts commissions

Mediums Used

She is a prolific artist, much in demand for one man and group exhibitions and her work is found all over Britain and as far afield as Lithunania and Korea. She has a refreshingly different approach to what she does and you only have to see what she creates to appreciate her undoubted skill.

I am interested in materials, either singly or in combination and their ability to express ideas. For some time my work has forcussed on water, it s structure, behaviours, altered states and multiple associations. Ideas of continuity and connection and an interest in layers beneath the surface are a direction for new work and conversely I am also exploring themes of disconnection and displacement.

Sculptures by antonia spowers



I moved to Wales from London nine years ago and have combined exhibiting, commissions and residencies in the country and an International Sculpture Park in Lithuania. The residencies have combined work with schools, local communities and environmental trust volunteers. The work has an environmental and sustainability emphasis. solar power for self-circulating water sculptures and re-cycled and re-useable materials combined with new technologies are special interests.
