Zany Zebras Art Trail sculpture

These Zebras were commissioned by Marwell Zoo for their Zany Zebra art trail in Southampton. I sculpted the maquette at about 6 inches tall; this was then scanned to produce a 3D file, milled from polystyrene at 80% of the size of a fully-grown Grevy's Zebra, then a mould was made, and around 50 fibreglass versions were cast. Working on a large scale version that had all the same detail as my original maquette was quite odd: it felt very familiar, but was the wrong size, which made me feel a bit like I'd been shrunk

The ceramic version was cast from a second, slightly smaller maquette that I made.
