When Barneys commissioned me to make giant chef heads for their “Have a Foodie Holiday” window displays, the first chef I made was the fabulous Martha Stewart! Scary hurdle #1: sculpting at ‘life size’, a scale that I’d never attempted before. Scary hurdle #2: making sure that Martha’s head was light enough to safely sit on top of a foam mannequin without toppling it! I called some of my amazing sculptor friends who calmed me down and convinced me I could do it. Then I gathered lots of photo reference and tons of random supplies that I’d never used before and got to work sculpting Martha Stewart. About a week and several more scary hurdles later, I carried the finished Martha in to the Barneys studio where Simon Doonan, Barneys brilliant Creative Director, said she was gorgeous and decided that I should make the remaining 10 heads much larger! Check out these behind-the-scenes pics revealing the ‘making of Martha’ and watch the video!
