PETER RABBIT INSPIRED BY THE MUCH-LOVED BEATRIX POTTER TALES


THE GORSE FAIRIES


Robert and James, better known as Bob and Jim, have been the best of friends for over 30 years. T ey share a passion for stories, illustration and sculpture, and together they’ve embarked on many creative adventures. Just over 10 years ago, Jim attended the RHS Chelsea Flower Show for the fi rst time. It was an extraordinary day, brimming with colour, inspiration and the surprising realisation that there were no sculptures woven around stories. T is was the moment that Alice in Wonder- land rose from the page and the idea of a limited-edition run of bronze sculptures based on the classic story was ignited in Jim’s creative and quirky mind. Turning a page in a book to see an illustration that brings the story to life is magical. Even in today’s digital world, the page of the book is where it all begins.


English classics such as Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures


In


Wonderland, illustrated by Sir John Tenniel; Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit; and Cicely Mary Barker’s T e Flower Fairies are faithfully modelled from the original illustrations. Robert and James were invited by Penguin Books, which own the


copy-


right to these treasured crea- tions, to work directly from the archives held at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. T e pair use old, handmade tools and fi ngerprints to press, move and model the clay into life, capturing the breath of the char- acters, as if they have momen- tarily stepped out of the book and into the three-dimensional world. Once modelled in clay, the pieces are cast in bronze and the highly collectable sculptures are installed in gardens, to weave their unique magic.
