I took the opportunity to develop the ideas that I had articulated in my application, in an exploratory and inventive mode. I thus made a series of paintings (watercolour and pastel sketches) and a set of maquette sculptures, as well as recording the very exciting environment with photographs and film clips.


The sculptures developed the theme of sea ‘gods’/people, and were in clay (natural, and self-drying) and modelling wax.

I am using the maquettes as a basis for larger sculptures in stone or wood
