Jo Lathwood

Jo Lathwood makes sculptures and large scale installations which regularly respond to a particular site, event, material or process.

Her portfolio varies greatly in form, scale, context and method of production, encompassing: temporary and permanent public art, exhibitions curated for galleries and heritage sites (often as the outcome of an artist residency) and studio-based work.  She has worked with Fabrica (Brighton), Trust New Art (the National Trust’s contemporary arts program), Arts Council England, Art, Cities & Landscapes in Amiens, France and Kunst and Zwalm in Belgium. 

In 2012 she co-founded Ore and Ingot, a travelling Bronze foundry and was co- director until 2018.  She is a Council member for Bristol University’s Earth Art Gallery and has been a visiting lecturer at Plymouth and Gloucester Universities.

Jo is Bristolian and has had studios in numerous locations across the city; she and loves to build staircases to mezzanines within them if they are tall enough.
