Biography / CV of Veda Hallowes

Veda Hallowes was born and brought up in South Africa, Veda began her working life as a nurse. Having reached the top of her career, she resigned to study first, music, and then ceramics. She moved to England in 1971, and attended art, ceramics, Chinese painting and sculpture courses 1971 to 2000, while bringing up a family and working as a sculptor, and porcelain potter.

By 1996 her work was almost exclusively sculptural and moving away from figurative pieces. Instead, drawing inspiration from softly rounded fruits and their intimation of fertility and association with the female figure, her work consisted of "Fruits" ranging on size from 10 to 70cms. Currently she concentrates on wall pieces. She works primarily in bronze with wonderful and unusual patinas, though sometimes she works in other media.

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."
