About Kari

Kari Furre has worked as a sculptor and fabricator for many years - in the museum and heritage world - notably the Jorvik Viking Centre, The Glacier Museum in Norway, the Scottish National Mining Museum and many others.

She was the fabricator for the well-known conceptural artist Yinka Shonibare MBE and has contributed to exhibitions in major galleries in the world - New York, Sydney, Paris etc.

I am drawn to processes that involve the body as well as the mind. Raising metal is one of these activities, a process that seems like magic. You need concentration and control, at the same time as allowing the material to develop in your hands. It can feel as if the metal has formed by itself.
