The roman soldier had not faired well in recent months; it dried out and cracked; mostly around the legs and forearms.

And while I was trying to take the two mould pieces off model, Kate took some videos – and quite rightly laughed at the spectacle [with tutor Ed in the background muttering].

Once the mould had come off, the roman looked more like a character for an old Dr Who episode…

    I do so enjoy receiving these updates on your progress. It’s fascinating to see the processes involved in moving towards a finished piece.

    Thank you Kate but you were there as head camera person [even though you got a fit of the giggles]. Thank you also for your support and interest as we both travel along the path that is the BA in Contemporary Crafts.
