Job: 

Museum of Somerset

Location: 

Somerset

Materials: 

Fiberglass

We made a number of things for the Museum of Somerset: some faux bronze busts, a group of life-size 'condemned men' and a false perspective WW1 trench. The busts were moulded and cast from plaster originals, in fiberglass with bronze powder. The figures and trench were modelled in clay, moulded with plaster 'waste moulds' and cast in fiberglass.
