Chris is insanely talented and extremely modest.... and his Amy Winehouse sculpture kicks ass!
It was a treat to see Chris's sculptures close up. They are so much bigger than I'd expected.
There's something amazing everywhere you turn. Hiding up on one of the shelves I saw Bill Shankly, a legend in Liverpool but if you don't follow football (as in soccer) then you may not be familiar with him.
Chris was commissioned to make Shankly for a client and then created a mould so he could cast several of them.
Chris taught himself how to do this by watching a mould making & casting workshop dvd. This process has always intrigued and terrified me at the same time. I don't know that I'm brave enough to try it but Chris made it look and sound so easy.
His cake toppers blew me away! He's working on one right now of a rock climbing couple.
Chris pulled out some sculptures that have been hiding away for too long, like this lovely lady who's a bit dusty but totally incredible...
...and this fascinating fella lurking in the corner.
The visit with Chris was so inspiring and fun. Thanks Chris for letting us into your world!
