About this project

These two creatures were made as a private commission where the client gave me a whole selection of the family’s discarded possessions which I could incorporate into the life size sculptures. The Fox has typewriter parts for his legs, an old spectacle case on his side and a badge saying ‘Trust me’ on his forehead. His target, the Hen has him in her sights with a Fox button for an eye and a flock of toy chickens on her head as the crest of her comb and several watches and pieces of jewellery .
