A small selection of some of our favourite work!

Crawling Baby

(detail of Time of My Life)


This baby is the second scene in our giant alarm clock sculpture ‘Time of My Life’

Amanda: I loved having my scrappy wood carving of a baby brought to life by Johnny, which shows up beautifully against the oil painted wallpaper backdrop by painter Tracey Keeping.

Johnny: I always used to play with Meccano as a kid and it was really fun to be able to use it to create the visible mechanism for the baby.
