After researching Lauren Tickle I chose to take her inspiration as a source for my work looking into gothic architecture. Lauren uses alternative materials in her work and is most known for her pieces made from dollar bills. I felt after learning about Lauren’s pieces, alternative materials should play a key role in my project. I particularly enjoyed experimenting and working with wax. After laser cutting patterns into both wood and acrylic, I made moulds from liquid silicone which I was then able to use to form the wax pieces.
