Ursula von Rydingsvard is one of the few women in the world working in monumental sculpture. This film covers nearly 80 years in the life of this vibrant sculptor whose work draws directly from nature and is forged into almost mythological creations revealing intimacy and tactility regardless of the scale. Born in 1942 Germany, von Rydingsvard spent 5 years in displaced persons camps before immigrating to the US. Go behind the scenes with von Rydingsvard as she and her team produce new work, including challenging commissions in copper and bronze. Whether in wood or bronze these works want the viewer to circle, to touch, to dwell. This film is a fascinating and engaging glimpse into an artist’s work, inspirations and process.
