Before Marmite Boy makes a long trip to his new home in Australia I have submitted Marmite Boy into the Marmite challenge on http://www.marmarati.org/challenges/challenge-2-crafts/ If you fancy placing a vote I’m sure Marmite Boy will be very happy with you indeed! A fitting tribute to the moments I have spent with him…will miss this little guy dearly!
Last week on Twitter and Facebook I ran a little competition to find a name that would represent the work I do. The response was fantastic and after much thought the name ‘Rust Bucket Workshop’ was chosen! I am so happy with it and I am aiming to use this along side Kendal Sculpture. I have set up a facebook page too if you fancy hopping on over to ‘like’ me… www.facebook.com/RustBucketWorkshop or/and friend me on www.facebook.com/KendalSculpture
This little person is made from found and discarded objects. I found the piece of wood it is standing on down at the estuary with 2 rusty nails sticking out of it…these made perfect legs! I made this piece for the PCM’s Free Art Exhibition taking place in Portsmouth on Sunday 8th April 2012 12:00pm until 4:00 pm. Its due to be a great event with lots of fantastic artists contributing. I doubt I will never know where mine will end up and with who but that is half the fun of it! Happy hunting!
