My work is characterised by lightweight, intricate, wooden structures. 

Selecting labour-intensive and repetitive processes, I celebrate the irregularity of the natural material whilst evidencing the hand.

I am currently presenting a collection of steam-bent, carved, and ebonised sculptures.

'In the same room, there’s the work of Alice Dudgeon, which operates in a sculptural language of handcrafted elegance and large scale ambition. The structure itself is a skeletal pine circle of skinny posts that spread out slightly as they go towards the ceiling. In the large room, the light passes through it, its presence not obstructive, instead opening out the space as it draws the eye upward (and across the amazing views of these studios); it’s a quietly uplifting experience.'
