This is an unfinished project, which I hope to find an ending to. In 2008 as part of Islington Mill Art Academy I set out to get to know the neighbours in the tower block nextdoor. I wanted to create a series of bronze busts of residents. I soon got to know Mabel, who was the only original resident from when the building was constructed in 1963. We became friends, we chatted as she sat and I sculpted a clay model of her head, I visited her church and she visited Islington Mill. I finished a clay version of her, which sits above the fridges in the Islington Mill Nightclub, but as yet haven’t made a bronze.
