Live sculpting for all occasions

Live sculpting is something the team really enjoy doing as it acts as a nice departure from studio shoots.

Public carvings are essentially live performances and are organised for a variety of reasons, some of which include councils wanting to increase revenue for local businesses or companies wanting to launch a product or service with a more eye-catching, unique event.

Live sculpting on a bigger scale

In some cases, the scale of the carving is much larger. Above you can see Jamie and Duncan sculpting an ice bear in Trafalgar Square to raise awareness for a Greenpeace campaign about the melting polar ice caps. A skeleton was formed in bronze and frozen in ice that was eventually carved into the shape of a polar bear. As it melted away, the skeleton gradually became visible, creating a visually arresting effect that was designed to grab as much attention as possible.

Live sculpting gives the public an opportunity to see the sculptors in action and ask whatever burning questions they may have. It’s a rare treat to be able to see the processes and techniques that go into creating a sculpture and watch it come to life before your eyes. It’s also a rare treat for the team to meet so many interesting characters and to have so many inquisitive people asking them about their work.
