Brief Biography: Nicola Godden has had over 30 years experience as a sculptor working in plaster and clay for bronze casting. Over the years she has worked on many site specific public works with property companies and other organisations; one of her most well-known was the bronze ‘Icarus’ sculpture for the Olympic Village in London 2012. The bulk of her work has been private work of various sizes exhibited in galleries in the U.K, Channel Islands, Ireland and America. Nicola’s work is nearly always based on the human figure.
About My Work:

My work, whether it is abstract or realistic, is nearly always based on the human figure and there is usually a story behind every piece. I have always wanted to work from the human form because of the feelings and emotions it conveys.
My work has changed enormously over time and has gone through many phases. These phases have been heavily influenced by what was happening in my life.
Ideas for new work can come from anywhere. They can come from a piece of flint or bone found while out walking or from a dream, mythology or something briefly half seen while travelling somewhere.
Over recent years I have been excited by the mythological figure of Icarus and have produced a series of ‘Icarus’ bronzes.
