Welcome to Serena Bates Sculpture


Stories are what define my work, what drive my vision, what inspire my hands...my life.

My sculptures incorporate a symbiotic mixture of ideas and visions from people around me, the environment and materials where I'm working. As I work in many different mediums from Bronze, Stone, Copper and Ceramic, this website encompasses the body of my sculptural work.

Many pieces are available for purchase, and I am open to commissions. Please enjoy your journey through my galleries and visit often, as the work will always be changing and updated.
