The beauty of working with Lee was that he encouraged you to explore your skills in craft and design – always pushing the limits. After much deliberation, I worked out how the corset could be achieved and the excitement of the journey began. It was my first time using wax sculpting on this scale and then casting in aluminum. However, it was to be the beginning of many more beautiful objects to come. We had discovered what it was possible to achieve which opened up new possibilities for creativity between us.’ S.L.
