Born in Paris I have traveled widely working and exhibiting in Canada, USA, Europe, London, and the South East and South West. Recently moved Dumfries Scotland.

As well as being a full time sculptor, I run 6 weekend workshops a year working from the model in clay. This is an informal class studying a life model, each student working at their own pace, class sizes between 8 and 12 students. Contact me for details.

I work directly from the figure with a variety of clays but mostly stoneware. I build up the sculpture using clay slabs and modeling the clay as I go, sometimes I also use a mould of a previous piece to get the basic form. None of my work is from life casts it is all hand modeled I am interested in the craft of interpreting the figure in my own way not in copying it. My work is then either fired or cast into bronze or resin.
I am currently in the process of exploring new materials and making methods. The content of my work is changing too looking more deeply into human relationships what does it mean to be human, responding to what’s going on at the moment in the socio/political/world arena.

Quote from a Fan!!

‘What has engaged Lucianne mostly in her work is the human form.
On seeing her sculpture one is struck by the beauty and powerful expressiveness of the form and its inherent flexibility as a vehicle to inspire.
In the tension, movement and sheer life in the craft of Lucianne Lassalle there is a feeling of anticipation that asks a question of you every time you see it."

Jeff Pirie, Collector

Just a bit about my inspiration of the human form in the language of sculpture.

I see the human form as the interface between the mental, emotional and spiritual internal processes and the manifestation of these processes in the outer world. The human form is a completely expressive, powerful and beautiful vehicle by which I am impelled and inspired.

Human form in sculpture has a very immediate relationship with its audience who respond in a physical and emotional way by sensing its presence, its tactile qualities, the way light moves over the form and then all the personal experiences that a movement, form or facial expression will resonate with.

Sculpture has a three dimensional sensual presence that occupies space in the same way as the human body it is therefore an honest and absolute way of expressing the human form.

Human beings have been representing the human form in sculpture for thousands of years; it is recognisable to all of us in its most simple expression. Therefore there are endless possibilities in how it is depicted giving a lot of freedom to artists to really plumb the depths of this fascinating subject. And nothing can be more fascinating to us than humankind or ultimately ourselves.
