George Cutts

British Sculptor

When I left the Royal College of Art, having studied figurative modelling and stone carving, I began wrapping stainless steel in carved stone, which I have continued throughout my career. The opposing materials with such diverse textural qualities interplay, emphasising my ideas. I play one off against the other, which I have taken through into my mobiles, the reaction creating optical illusions, playing with shapes in space. The inspiration and theme for all my sculptures is landscape, plant growth, light and water.


George lives and works in East Sussex UK where he converted a Victorian school building into a studio. He works mainly on commission, but always has a range of sculptures available. His work may be seen at Sculpture at Goodwood in West Sussex and at Storm King Art Center in Mountainville, New York, USA.

George left school at 14 gaining a range of skills as an apprentice sheet metal worker at Goole Shipyards in Northern England. George subsequently won a prestigious scholarship to Doncaster School of Art, followed by a scholarship for post-graduate studies. During this time, George trained under Professor John Skeaping at the Royal College of Art, London, where he was the youngest student to have been admitted at the time. 

George Cutts is a great innovator, and the first sculptor in the world to combine stainless steel and stone. Where he has lead many others have followed. George works dynamically on a very large scale, and his static and mobile sculptures are known and appreciated worldwide.
