Mel Fraser MRBS is a contemporary sculptor specialising in stone. She has worked from a variety of studios in and around Cambridge since the mid nineties. She is equally at home working on abstract or figurative pieces and her work has been shown at numerous art fairs around Europe and New York, The Chelsea Flower Show, Marks Hall, Doddington and at on form, the UK’s most prestigious sculpture exhibition devoted solely to stone.
Mel has worked in Carrara and Pietrasanta in Italy, at the quarries and stone yards in Kilkenny, Ireland and has a long collaboration with members of the Shona tribe from Zimbabwe.
Her work is held by collectors all over the world and a recent commission saw her work installed in Frank Gehry’s Opus Building in Hong Kong.
In December 2015 she finished working on a larger than life-sized piece of 3 figures in Kilkenny limestone for one of the UK’s largest trade unions, the GMB.

'Mel Fraser is a sculptor of exceptional talent who will assuredly be at the forefront of collected sculptors of the future. Working both figuratively and in the abstract her stone pieces have a presence that cannot be ignored.'
