This year whilst working for the Modern Souvenir Company, I’ve been busy sculpting a replica of the great bard; William Shakespeare.

This was made exclusively for the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust for their Famous Beyond Words exhibition.

During this time I visited the Trust several times to take detailed measurements, bringing the sculpt with me to work with the original right beside me. The piece is now produced for sale in the museum store and cast in British gypsum plaster by the Modern Souvenir Company.
