After working as a nurse in South Africa, Veda Hallowes moved to London where her love of creating beautiful forms asserted itself. Her exploration began with a focus on ceramics and ceramic sculpture. During this period she produced unique porcelain pieces ran a ceramics school from her studio in South West London. In the nineties, she expanded her practice to working with bronze and began her lifelong depiction of natural forms and to date has created over a hundred and thirty works in editions of up to nine pieces.
She’s best known for her bronze fruits and seeds that transcend their original subject matter by echoing the female form. There’s a wonderful sense of ambiguity in her work and each piece is imbued with a unique life and vitality. Her series of small fruit pieces are about relationships and connection.
