sleeping beauty

I really enjoy sculpting in different materials. Here is a group student project at RWCMD to reproduce ‘Dornröschen’ (Sleeping Beauty), 1878 – Louis Sussmann-Hellborn, from a photo, in 4 weeks.

materials: plywood, polystyrene, jesmonite, cloth, resin, acrylic.

I worked with a great team: Hettie Kitson, Em Spoor, Faith Hucklesby & Flora Mealyou,
taught by Rorie Brophy at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.
