On display at Debut Contemporary, Notting Hill. Exhibition opening tonight!
Excuse the blurry phone pics, my camera has died but I just wanted to get some images up :) I'm so proud of this, he's sort of the polar opposite of the Rats, I wanted to make something so 'rare' (ha) and perfect (despite the contradictions of that word)... and here he is!

Clear acrylic Pegasus
White acrylic Unicorn
Reclaimed flooring 'real' Horse
Person inc for scale
And a realistically sized horse, which would be entirely possible given enough 25mm-thick material... I'd LOVE to make an enormous one...

Still needs work, tweaks, adjustments etc, but I'm really quite pleased with it at this stage :)
I think I'll have the template horse down within the next few days, fingers crossed I can get some Laser appointments! Then I aim to make subtle changes to each one I get cut, differently shaped bodies and faces to give them each individual character.
I also want to make a VERY limited run of Unicorns and/or Pegasus' with the remaining white and clear Acrylic. The rest will be normal horses made with reclaimed laminate flooring and other wood-type materials.

Yes, the photos are on a train (on my way to London about a gallery/company called Debut Contemporary interested in my work...exciting!)

It's kinda leading on from a project I already did, in my first year... which at the time I was really proud of, but now I only see the mistakes... SO, with changes, and all that I've learned...I'm going to make a better one...
...an arching neck....using laser-cutting...layering instead of carving...being more honest with articulation & pivots... using reclaimed stuff... yes. I'm looking forward to seeing this herd...
