Working hard or hardly working?!


"I like work; it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours."

~ This quote, by Jerome K Jerome sprang to mind when I had glued the very last busy elf into this 'Father Christmas Workshop'. (US English - 'Santa's Workshop').

I completed this piece within 300 hours over the past 3 weeks. Yep - 3 weeks. That meant living only to work on this piece, so I was certainly busier than the elves I portrayed. It is currently being exhibited at Creature Features in Burbank, Los Angeles, which is a very cool place for film buffs and people who seek out the extraordinary. The exhibition runs until the first week of January.

I took some photos of the scene the day before the exhibition opened. It is 1:12 (one inch) scale and everything was made by myself out of polymer clay, wood, plexiglas, plaster and fabrics. It has lighting which can run off either battery or the mains. It's solidly built and everything is attached, so it can be shipped worldwide.
If you're interested in purchasing it then please do visit Creature Features and take a look at it. After the exhibition ends, if it has not sold you can email me here to buy it directly. Whilst the exhibition runs you may only buy it through the gallery.

Off to Shanghai, China on Wednesday for my next exhibition... will try and post a bit about that one before I go!
