Dick Lee 1923 - 2001

My daughter asked me about this small model I have in my studio. Dick Lee was a very talented colleague of mine at Camberwell School of Art and he frequently made models of tutors as gifts. This uncannily realistic model of me was made in the 1970's. I had just bought some glass from Peckham Glass for a student project, hence the sheets of glass I am carrying. I saw many of his models over the years and they were full of carefully observed detail that related to the person and their interests, often in very creative compositions. It's been great fun having this model to keep me company all through the years! Sadly Dick died in 2001 but you can find out more about him from this obituary in The Guardian.
