Burberry Maker's House

Maker’s House is now open to the public for London Fashion week 2016! Through my work with Timothy Richards, I was commissioned to produce a series of busts for British fashion house Burberry® as part of the 2016 London Fashion Week.

The inspiring iconic brand has work with luxury craft retailer: The New Craftsman, to take over the former Foyle’s bookshop in Soho, London. This event is so exciting because is has resulted in a celebratory that champions the methods and materials of British makers.

The project involved sculpting a series of eight life size busts of iconic British figures: Thomas Burberry, Ernest Shackleton, Queen Victoria, Virginia Woolf, Alfred Hitchcock, Emmeline Pankhurst and Jane Austen. Each one was sculpted in fine clay and cast in British gypsum plaster.
