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.
