Sculpture Commission

CREATED: 01/01/70
Sculpture Commission

After being let down on a pottery commission for Alison’s birthday Bob decided maybe it was time to work on a sculpture of his own. Their son William was the subject of the life size sculpture.  Using the coiling clay method Bob began at the feet and coiling, he sculpted as the sculpture grew.  William had some input and was quite forthright about the colours and the No. 7 on the back of his shirt (his age and of course New Zealand Rugby Player Richie McCaw’s number) Read more below.

















The pointing was just so William!!

People have commented that they would not have related the work Bob does in the studio to a one off sculpture like this one so we thought we would share it with you. For Bob it has been a great challenge and joy to express his talents in this way.
