Rachel Carter is a sculptor living and working in England on the Derbyshire-Nottinghamshire border. Rachel creates large-scale sculptures using the lost wax technique in bronze for the garden and smaller, more intimate, sculptures for the home.
Since graduating with honors in Applied Arts, Rachel has found herself driven by process and materials in sculpture. In 2020, she was commissioned to create several Pilgrim Woman sculptures in commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower. Her Pilgrim Woman sculptures combine hand-woven elements and include community weavings cast in bronze. A larger-than-life-size Pilgrim Woman sculpture has been installed at the Danum Gallery in Doncaster and a smaller version stands on the banks of the River Trent in Gainsborough. A third Pilgrim Woman sculpture will be installed in Boston, Lincolnshire in Spring 2022.
