Make more models
A visit to The Hepworth Gallery to view some of Hepworth's plaster maquettes and other model workings. They were a joy to see, but highlighted my own woeful lack of 'finished' maquettes for sculptures. My studio is littered with half-baked working models abandoned and interest and focus lost. Hepworth's maquettes have inspired me to do better and to value them more for their own, intrinsic value and character, as well as useful steps in the creative process. Whilst at the gallery I took these images of boat shapes to help with maquettes for a work that currently is either too boat-like or not enough.
