Finished modelling the second (Chinese) head and made a plaster mould of this one and the Pandora head. Both are rather straight ‘copies’, though simplified, and are merely the first stage towards the deconstructed hybrid heads. As usual, the plaster casting takes longer than I’d imagined, and combined with a day on the Frankenstein project my three days in London are soon swallowed up. I’m feeling that time is slipping away, only four weeks left in residency here! Time to adopt a strategic approach, and focus on gathering the information I need from archives, stores and collections while I still have privileged access as an ‘insider’.
