About Briony

Portrait of Briony

“I draw my inspiration in the wild, salty air of the Atlantic coast. The rocky headlands and mossy, fertile valleys give me a feeling for structure, texture and form that, from an early age, I have wanted to translate into sculpture”

– Briony Lawson


Briony Lawson has worked in wood, stone and clay and has drawn much of her inspiration from the wild landscape of her native North Devon coast. She continues to work on the organic forms that surround her in nature and especially in the beautiful garden created by her husband, Andrew at Gothic House, Oxfordshire.

Since studying as a student at City & Guilds Art School in London Briony has produced a dynamic body of work deriving from a love of natural forms – whether human or plant forms or the landscape itself.
