Patricia Volk

 

Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Patricia Volk is a Fellow of the Royal British Society of Sculptors and an RWA academician, confirming her position as an outstanding visual artist working in painted fired clay; a term she much prefers to “ceramics”. 

Her sculptures feature in the collections of Swindon Art Gallery and Museum, best-selling author Anthony Horowitz, former BAFTA chairman Simon Relph CBE, the British Consul (Ivory Coast), Lord Carrington, and the television presenter Mary Portas. She was Regional Winner of the ING “Discerning Eye” prize in 2007, has been shortlisted for the prestigious Brian Mercer Bronze Casting Residency in Pietrasanta, and has exhibited nationally and internationally. 

In 2017 she was invited by the Trustees of the Designer Crafts Foundation to visit Israel as one of their guest sculptors, speaking at the symposium in Tel Hai, lecturing both in Jerusalem at the Israel Museum and at the Bet Benyamini Centre in Tel Aviv. In 2019 she was commissioned by ITV as part of the prestigious ‘ITV Creates’ initiative, making her sculpture visible on screen to millions of television viewers. 

She has recently been included in 50 Women Sculptors, the first book to give an overview of women sculptors from 1880 to today, which explores the work of “extraordinary women artists who have forged a name for themselves in a male arena, as well as breaking rules, pushing boundaries and inspiring us with their visionary creations”. 

She lives and works on the border between Somerset and Wiltshire
