Born in Dorset, England. Cara Wassenberg is a British sculptor who works in forged steel and copper and more recently cast glass. She makes sculptures for gardens and public spaces as well as smaller pieces for domestic interiors and exhibitions.
Using steel, copper and glass she is currently developing work which is made using a combination of forging and casting techniques. By allowing these materials to influence and affect the other (during a controlled making process) feelings of tension and transition can start to become evident in the work along with more organic interactions.
Cara’s work is often abstract but it contains strong references to the visual language of the countryside. Its organic forms and the aesthetic that she sees in the tools, techniques and process of craft and agricultural practice provides inspiration for her sculpture.
