I thought you might like to have a quick look at some of the work I'm doing in my sculpture class.  This is the stuff I do for fun!

I do evenings at Glasgow School of Art, and this is the piece that I'm working on at the moment.

It's constructed from hessian material covered in the world's supply of plaster, and placed over a metal and wooden armature to support it.

It's an old trick I picked up from Rodin, who used a real dressing gown dipped in plaster as a study for his finished bronze sculpture of Balzac...

However, with all our struggles so far in the studio with giant sheets of monumentally heavy plaster-coated hessian slopping all over the place, I think I'm on a pretty steep learning curve....


  1. put a scythe in its hand and you have the grim reaper!!


  2. I think it needs a bit of work....
