Sketches in Tyres

Always on the lookout for an opportunity to convert someone’s rubbish into treasure I ‘rescued’ a broken Victorian style bench from a skip in Nantwich. This bench combined with my dead kindle which¬†went for a ‘swim’ when I fell asleep in the bath, inspired my 1st human figure. I envisaged a child who was sitting in a garden reading her kindle. As my friend Kelly Brammer runs the local venture scouts group I approached her to get permission for one of the girl scouts to be measured for the armature. On this piece I devised a new technique to make hands.
