ARTIST INFO
Jo Sweeting is a sculptor and lettercarver, whose work is informed by theconcept of ‘shul’, a marking which remains after the thing that has made it has passed. She works chiefly in British Limestone. Sweeting works as a printmaker, and produces her work as woodcuts, which are often very large works. She designed the frontispiece for Hetty Saunders’ biography of J. A. Baker, My House of Sky , published by Little Toller in 2017 and has had images published in World of Interiors magazine. Jo is at present carving a large erratic boulder called Foundle. She is also working towards a large project in Devon in collaboration with Common Ground and the National Trust, supported by Robert Macfarlane, Chalk Cliff Trust. She enjoys working to commission.“Sweeting is a specialist letter carver… Her lapidary art makes words tangible, and makes them last.” Historian Alexandra Harris “I hold Jo’s art in the highest regard. She is, unmistakably, among thehandful of leading stone-carvers and sculptors in the country.” Author RobertMacfarlane
