A Nation of Shot-Putters

Local artist Tony Gormless has had the brilliant idea of filling the fourth empty plinth in Stroud’s “Plaza Del Dull” with one of his own sculptures.

This is to be the first piece of a new and exciting sculpture trail for our town, it should help with our tourist problem ……. problem being, we don’t have any tourists.

   

For the technically minded ….

 

Stainless steel armature

Vermiculite clay core

5-10mm shell of sculpting wax, coloured and blended.

Eyes and hair …. donated by the sculptor himself.
