“This is a recreation of a prop from American comedy Parks and Recreation, which I’m a big fan of. Its bronze powder, fast cast, sculpting and laser cutting.
I also made a puzzle maze on the lathe and mill. I got it sulphuric anodised to protect the surface – it gives it the blue colour.
My stained glass butterfly is based on a glasswinged butterfly. Their wings are actually see-though, so I choose to use glass. I sculpted the body and cast it in pewter. This model is ten times bigger than the real thing.
I would like to go and work in TV props or movie miniatures. I did one in my second year, and they’re really coming back.”
