Statues

Statues are normally of a ‘one off’ nature and the shape of the statue is intricate with many ‘undercuts’ so to overcome difficulties in the moulding process a layer of rubber is used to give detail of the statue. The rubber is peeled off the mould leaving a fine detail in the mould without tearing the sand.

 

One statue we have previously made is called ‘Kaia’ with a babe in arms, a young girl clutching her skirt, and a battered old suitcase behind her. She stands as a memorial to the woman and children who lived at the Uranquinty migrant camp whilst their men were working in the Snowy Mountains hydroelectric scheme and other government projects.
