Zoe Carmichael ASEA
Trained in Florence in the Old Master Techniques of classical sculpture and working in bronze, Carmichael’s main focus has been the equine form. She is inspired by a lifetime spent in the saddle at a local and International level enabling her to capture the spirit and soul of each animal and offer an almost ‘real life’ interaction for the viewer.
Raffaello Romanelli has placed Carmichael in the top 1% of students he’s taught, and she has been labelled as ‘one to watch’ by art world experts. Carmichael has become the first ever Sculptor-in-Residence to the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment and she has gained a loyal following and waitlist for commissions, namely Kitty’s Light the record breaking racehorse and Ajax, the shire horse and mascot to the Worshipful Company of Coopers. Carmichael’s work won the prize for Best Sculpture at the ‘Horses in Art Exhibition 2023′ at Tennant Auctioneers, Yorkshire.
Carmichael’s sculptures are created from working from life and from her studio in Gloucestershire. All sculptures are cast at Morris Singer Foundry, Basingstoke, using the lost wax method of casting.
“It is an honour to cast important horses and figures for clients seeking a timeless commemoration, and to contribute to our collective public memory. I feel unbelievably lucky to have found this passion for sculpture in 2022, which I can pair with my love of horses, and hopefully give joy to many people.”
