Celia Dowson studied Renaissance Sculpture in Florence, focusing on techniques in sculpting the figure. She went on to complete a BA in Ceramic Design at Central Saint Martins.
Celia's work specialises in figuratives culpture. Her 'shadow' figures explore Carl Gustav Jung’s theories on the Collective Unconscious and the archetype of the ‘Shadow Self’. The hand carved sculptures are shaped by the idea of repression, self-recognition, and acceptance. They suggest through elongation their movement into a higher state of self-awareness.
