Zoe Rubens is a sculptor who studied Sculpture at Metropolitan University of Manchester where she gained a BA First Class (with Honours) Degree.
'Drawing is integral to the way in which I construct sculpture and print. I work primarily with metal (bronze, steel, copper and brass), ceramic (raku and smoke fired), to form a visual poetry. Continual re-evaluation is vital.
