Figurative sculpture based on work done in life-drawing



High Heels Series

Silver on elm base

There are several starting points for these pieces. This series was started as something of a reaction to having been commissioned to make a series of silver military statuettes. They could be seen as camp followers! In treatment, they derive from Art Deco chryselephantine statuettes, although the colours are here created by the use of patination rather than contrasting materials.
