1992 - 93
My first creative venture designed to support myself on moving to Berlin in '92. Little documentation survives, but glad to have this chap as a reminder, the Love Lion complete with poem written on his back, hanging out now with my parents in their garage in the UK. I made a hundred or so, various sizes, the larger ones from fired clay and painted. Dinosaurs, goblins, Frankenstein's Monsters... The Love Lion and other "poetry puppets" were moulded from plaster in silicone, also painted in acrylics. I sold them at the art markets around Berlin - or tried to.
