Medium Bronze (edition of 15)
Size 15" (38cm)
Modeled in the United States in 2004.
The bust was commissioned by Debbie’s husband, but she was not too keen to have herself on display! As a compromise the bust was modelled 3/4 life-size and includes the base in bronze. This gives the work a domestic scale that is not too overpowering and easy to place in the family home.
Debbie wanted the bust to make her look younger, which is always difficult to achieve well. She had sparking eyes and a clarity that I aimed to capture.”
