Working on a maquette is an important part of developing, and trying to visualise an idea in 3D form; it is a vital small-scale model. I feel that it is an opportunity to explore and experiment with the fundamentals; the volume, the scale, and the proportions of the sculpture. Many of my maquettes begin with modelling in clay, and generally it is small enough to hold in the hand, so it can be appreciated from every point of view. It is a ‘dialogue’ between the hands, the eyes, and the brain.

Quite often a mould, either a plaster piece-mould, or a flexible mould (in vinamold) is made from the initial model, in order to achieve several plaster pieces to be worked on. This process hopefully encourages a freer approach to find a possible final design. I also need a maquette so I can scale up the sculpture, and I need to be able to draw on to it to register reference points, so it constantly informs me when making a larger sculpture.
