Jennifer Tetlow is a sculptor working in stone which she carves into forms inspired by the wildlife and landscape of North Yorkshire, where she lives. After carefully selecting blocks at the quarry, she direct carves into pieces with clean, simple lines, working the surface to a high finish.
Stone sculpture is a slow, steady process and her larger pieces, of many tonnes, can take months to complete. In contrast she also enjoys making smaller work, in delicate stones, which polish and shine. Work is exhibited locally – the focus of a recent exhibition has been the Harrison Collection at the Ryedale Folk Museum and she worked closely with the Dales Countryside Museum in Hawes last year, on a commission carving a large Aurochs for their new sculpture trail. Projects have also included lettercutting and relief carving.
Work ranges from £150 – £10,000.
Current methods of working: Public Commission, Private Commission, Stone carving workshops and courses
