Wedding sculpture. Sugar and mixed media 69cm (27").
Huge sugar wedding sculpture made for Sharon and Woody who run a tattoo and piercing studio in High Wycombe.
The talented artists commissioned a meter tall wacky wedding sculpture for display on their wedding day and later to be displayed in their studio.
The sugar groom was dressed the same as Woody but I left his shirt open to show a copy of one of his tattoos on the sculptures chest.
Sharon also asked for her figure to wear a copy of her wedding dress and I added sugar shoes with heels made from pewter sheet. Both had glass eyes, Woody hair feather hair and Sharon’s figure had hair made from raffia like material.
This was a fun job because the BBC TV took an interest. A reporter and camera man came to my studio, filmed me discussing the piece then transporting it to High Wycombe and interviewed the happy couple to get their reactions on first seeing their sculpture. They said they were thrilled and made some lovely comments about my work.
