Rebecca Buck Osprey Studios.

Guardians of the Valley, 30cm H x 67cm W x 26cm D.

Raised between New York, USA and Oxford, UK, within a chaotic family of academics, I am a Sculptor by both nature and nurture, a muddy day-dreamer  taught to question everything.

I chose a nomadic existence, collecting views and making sculpture and parting with it on the back-roads and by-ways until 1992 when the arrival of my eldest son anchored me to the UK.

Osprey Studios was a fluid mix of Studio and Community practice until 1994 when it coalesced with the acquisition of a terrifying dragon of a kiln.

The move to the stunning and inspirational landscape of Wales in 1998, with it’s rich, ancient culture, vibrant humour and brick-making tradition has allowed Osprey Studios to establish and the work to mature.

My Sculptures are in private collections all over the world and also with the National Trust and the National Parks here in the UK. My Public work is intensely collaborative. I have developed a range of accessible techniques that I am happy to share here online or in workshops – one of life’s great joys is connecting others with their creativity through hands-on work or by helping them find the form that speaks for them.

I hope the Shop will be helpful for buying my sculptures directly from the Studio and from the beautiful Galleries I show with in the UK and USA.

I am honoured and delighted that students from universities and schools across the world are studying my work and over 2018 I will go through the site and add further information with that in mind.

For explanations of the Series click here and ideas about some individual sculptures are in the sculpture catalogue.

Here’s my ‘What do artists do all day?’.       , a collection of my thoughts about making sculpture written in reply to student’s questions, that describes my back-ground, approaches and methods in more detail.

Here’s why it’s called Osprey Studios.
