Sculpting canine works of art with wire and vintage books by Lorraine Corrigan.
Lorraine has a passionate interest in the keeping of and the artistic reproduction of the sighthound group of dogs such as the whippet, borzoi, greyhound and saluki. Their sleek elegant lines and doe-like features have been inspirational in the wire-based paper mache sculptures you see here on this site. Lurchers feature too; cross-breeding, for example, the elegance of the whippet with the hardiness of the bedlington terrier. Lorraine’s dogs combine the qualities of delicacy through the use of wire and the sturdiness of papier mache using recycled vintage paper.
