Description

Margaret Williams Wood Sculptor and Artist

Margaret Williams is based in Fenland.

She began drawing, painting and clay-modelling at a very early age and since 1996 has been sculpting in wood.  

Her more serious sculptures often attempt to ask questions which involve the observer's emotions.

The aim is to produce a piece which is pleasing to the eye but which requires more than superficial regard.  Humanoid figures may be distorted into impossible space or blend to become something else.  

Margaret does however also have a lighter side and enjoys producing quirky funny carvings and other artwork, usually of animals - including humans!  Some sculptures are larger and for outside display, but the majority are for indoors and under 500mm high.

Many works are designed to be seen 'in the round' and from different angles, often hiding a shock, surprise or laugh as they are turned.  The owner of one of Margaret’s sculptures often has a piece which, when turned, provides a very different image from the previous view.

Various timbers are used, including lime (the traditional carving wood), other European woods and sustainable exotics from Africa, Asia and Australasia.  Metal, stone, glass, mirrors and plastics are also included in some sculptures.
