I made a series of sculptures in wax in 2020 that were later cast in bronze. I wanted to experiment with wax and see what I could do with it. I wanted to make a sculpture of a ‘retro’ phone – my sculpture is tiny – a small sculpture of a large object. I liked playing around with the size and thinking about how to fit things together – the mouth/earpiece is removable and the ‘wire’ is a spiral spring so it behaves like a real, old-fashioned phone where you can pick the receiver up, but it’s really tiny.
