George lives and works in East Sussex UK where he converted a Victorian school building into a studio. He works mainly on commission, but always has a range of sculptures available. His work may be seen at Sculpture at Goodwood in West Sussex and at Storm King Art Center in Mountainville, New York, USA.

He left school at 14 gaining a range of skills as an apprentice sheet metal worker at Goole Shipyards in Northern England. He won a rarely awarded scholarship to Doncaster School of Art followed by a scholarship for post-graduate studies, trained under Professor John Skeaping, at the Royal College of Art, London, where at the time he was the youngest ever student to have been admitted.

George Cutts is a great innovator, the first sculptor in the world to combine stainless steel and stone, and where he has lead many others have followed. His static and mobile sculptures are known and appreciated worldwide. He works dynamically on a very large scale.

George is looking for a suitable site to place the tallest moving sculpture in the world, a new concept in kinetics, which attracted the attention of Lord Foster.
