Jo Woffinden Concrete Sculptures

Jo Woffinden is a London-based artist who works in concrete, but has a background in ceramics. Her recent forms are based on curves and planes:

"My current work synthesizes elements taken from contemporary architecture with the underlying currents, which unfold Baroque structures. I have used the curve to create a spatial flow between planes and lines, which disrupt and work with simple geometry. Through subtle tensions, I intend to create a relationship between surfaces and forms, which can alter our perception of space."






Describing her concrete work she says:

 "Using concrete I have developed tactile surfaces, which appeal to the senses. I intend to show concrete as soft, warm and inviting and for the material to act as mediator between interior and exterior.  I would like to invite the viewer to engage with space and materiality in new ways through their encounter with my sculptural objects.

Thanks for the post, and I have to say that some of this stuff is pretty amazing knowing that it's made out of concrete. But I had a question and I was wondering what structural shotcrete is? Because I haven't had the best luck finding an answer. So any help or tips would be great.

Loan Opportunity Offered By Mr, Benjamin That Save My Family From Financial Bondage {lfdsloans@lemeridianfds.com / lfdsloans@outlook.com}

Hello Everyone, I am Putri Adiratnaa single mom from Jakarta, I would like to share this great testimony on how I got a loan from Mr, Benjamin, when we were driven out of our home when I couldn't pay my bills anymore, After being scammed by various companies online and denied a loan from my bank and some other credit union I visited. My children were taken by the foster care, I was all alone in the street. The day i shamefully walked into an old school mate who introduced me to Daisy Maureen. At first I told her that I am not ready to take any risk of requesting a loan online anymore, but she assured me that I will receive my loan from them. On a second thought, due to my homelessness I had to take a trial and applied for the loan, luckily for me I received a loan of $80,000.00 from Mr, Benjamin. I'm happy I took the risk and applied for the loan. My kids have been given back to me and now I own a home and a business of my own. All thanks and gratitude goes to Le_Meridian Funding Service and for the help of Mr, Benjamin for giving me a meaning to life when i had lost all hope.
