One of my old Papermache Sculptures has turned up for sale on eBay, I wonder where she has been living.
Made in 1981, after leaving college, while living at Redmarley Gloustershire. It is a sculpture of me and our cat , as I attempt to do a cartwheel while the cat watches below.
From the pictures it looks a bit dusty and damaged, but I am pleased to see it’s survived. At that time I made a number which were sold from galleries around Cheltenham and Stroud.
I made her plaits from recycled baler twine and tried to make sure each one was built on a good wire armature which was then attached to a pine base. However, not all these pieces have faired so well . I know of one that was left beyond repair when a woman threw it at her husband.
