Deborah Harrison

Deborah is an award-winning contemporary sculptor who specialises in stone.  Her passion for stone carving began in her middle years with a chance encounter at an arts festival. She is now a full-time professional sculptor based in Gloucester. She carves indoor and outdoor pieces from a wide variety of stones. Deborah works together with the stone’s shape, grain and colour until she reaches a kind of skin and the piece takes on a life of its own. Influences on her practice include human and organic forms, social justice and her faith. Her sculptures are a combination of abstract, figurative and prophetic works.
This year, Gloucestershire NHS Trust purchased her sculpture called ‘The Hand of Fannie Storr’ to celebrate their first regional director of nurse training. It will be on display at Gloucester Royal. Other works can also be seen at the RWA, SWAc, Delamore Arts and the OXO Gallery on London’s Southbank. 

Deborah is a founder member of the Cotswold Sculptors Association which after only three years has around 100 members. She is based at Gloucester City works; the site of an old shirt factory where she tutors 3D stone carving courses, for all levels of ability, and works closely with her clients to produce commissions.
