Roughs for a new campaign for Barbour's lightweight SS18 range of jackets.
I'm extremely excited to share with you guys that I have been working on a new campaign with Barbour jackets for their latest range of lightweight wax jackets! A nice open brief in which they wanted me to create a sculpture that symbolises lightweight whilst using their new lightweight wax material within it. I was given a week to produce the piece in which time a time lapse camera was set up in my studio to capture the design and build process.
So I obviously went for birds in my design! But I was drawn to starlings as the colouring of them was really suited to the wax material colours. Also, the week before I had been down to Teignmouth in Devon and whilst sitting having a coffee on the front a beautiful murmuration of starlings started up and I was mesmerised! This sparked the design above, a murmuration of starlings that from one direction resembled the shape of a Barbour jacket. This proved far too ambitious to produce in a week, but I did produce something along the same lines..... More soon!
