Peter Randall-Page studied at the Bath Academy of Art at Corsham and worked as a conservation stone mason before taking up a scholarship to study marble carving at Carrara in 1980. Within a short time he won the first of many public commissions and his work has been regularly shown in major sculpture exhibitions. The inspiration for his work often comes from organic form, though he rarely works directly from nature, and his aim is to use the essential characteristics of the form and the material to 'transport the spirit'. He is committed to working in stone, its geological antiquity being part of the attraction: "...the fact that it has been around long before human beings ..... can confront us with a sense of our own existence in a way that something that is second-hand or man-made cannot."
