SUGAR AND CERAMIC WITH MIXED MEDIA SCULPTURES
Heather has won many gold and silver national and international awards
for her sugar artistry. Her demonstrations, workshops and awards have
been written about in national magazines, the local press and featured
on TV. Sculptures are made from paper or polymer clay and her own permanent
sugar recipe which dries as hard as porcelain therefor lasts for many
years.. Decorated with mixed media - rope, copper, pewter, feathers, raffia,
I design humorous mixed media figures as well as trying to portray mans
relationship and growing dependence on gadgets and machines, hence the
cyber like figures I sometimes make showing metal integrated with flesh.
I have many influences and am inspired by puppet designers, the work of
American doll artists such as Susanna Oroyan and the humorous automatons
of Chomick and Meder, African figure sculpture, modern music videos, the
illustrations of H.R. Giger to mention just a few.
I have no desire to illustrate from life, I much prefer to use my imagination
so there are no rules! I love the quirky, humorous and unusual, I aim
to surprise the viewer (and hopefully, occasionally raise a smile).
