John Crampin

John is a Lincolnshire-based artist who specialises in sculpting natural and abstract works using locally sourced stone. Inspiration is predominantly drawn from the natural world with much of his portfolio best described as studies in plant, bird and human form.
John’s favoured media are durable Ancaster limestone, Portland limestone, Cornish soapstone and alabaster. These ancient sedimentary rocks, common to central and southern England, are a perfect material with which to create his beautiful organic pieces.

Some works are abstract in nature and draw on John’s experience as a mathematician where line, surface, balance and symmetry are so important. The shapes and profiles used are often allowed to adjust their form as creation of the individual piece progresses. The result is harmonic and tactile sculptures with a deceptive simplicity.
