Childhood is when we form so many of our values and ideas. I have explored lots of childish forms in my sculptures and this is another in the series. I often use female forms as they are more fun to make with long hair and dresses.
I have explored balloons lifting people off the ground and I love the contrast of the balloon seeming to float but in reality being held there by the wire. The Banksy picture above captures the innocence when a simple balloon can hold so much wonder. I feel I have achieved a bit of the same feeling too. The story is simple but beautiful nonetheless.
