Man-made Growth (2021)

Sculpture

1m tall

Paper clay, wire, and found objects

Part of the man-made growth series which can be found here

My series, "man-made growth" was inspired by mushrooms and their relationship with death and pollution. Particularly the ways different mushrooms and fungi can be used to clean up man-made disasters such as oil spills and nuclear explosions. Each sculpture in the series will feature a large mushroom, combined in some way with man-made found objects or artistic representations of human effects on the world. 

 

#One day I hope to work in the special effects industry and my work mainly consists of imaginative sculpture, inspired by fairies and magical worlds. I work a lot with paper mache, plaster and clay.
