Imps and Things
Impsandthings, the name by which sculptor, maker and photographer creates imps, trolls, hags and other strange creatures. Each piece is based loosely on the strange folk who live near his studio in the forest, however as trolls are fairly shy about having their likeness copied (something to do with them having light fingers and liking to ‘collect’ shiny things they find “ ‘onestly they w’re just lying their lookin’ lonely” ) each piece is changed slightly to protect the suspect their privacy.
Pete’s sculptures are made from polymer clay over a wire armature and dressed with found fabric and leather. Once completed each piece is photographed in the local woods and forgotten places as the trolls explore their world.
