I’m a sculptor with a slightly wicked sense of humour who relishes the idea of being up to no good, of looking at things with a mischievous glint in my eye…
My body of work combines a variety of materials, from electronic parts to semi-precious stones, to monumental bronzes.
I aim to be moving and wryly amusing at the same time, producing pieces that are intricately crafted and beautiful to look at.

Steven Gregory was born in South Africa in 1952 but has lived in London since the 1960’s.
He studied sculpture at St Martins School of Art. Gregory's determination to engage with tools and to learn traditional skills led him also to complete a full stonemason’s apprenticeship in which capacity he subsequently worked on Westminster Abbey and many other notable historic buildings.
Gregory has exhibited widely both in the UK and globally, including Germany, France, Italy, Iceland, New York and Czech Republic.
Currently Steven Gregory is working on a range of jewellery.
In the summer of 2015 his monumental sculpture in bronze: One of Us on a Tricycle, bought by the Gateway Foundation, has been installed in a public space in St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
