About this video

Scottish sculptor Mary Bourne works primarily in stone. In this video, she explores her sculpture Shield, inspired by the landscape at Culloden battlefield in the Scottish Highlands and carved from Scottish slate. She explains how drawing helps her observe the landscape and develop her ideas, demonstrating with a brush and ink drawing of her local view. Mary then shows how she created a paper sculpture that draws on the view from her window, her first time sculpting with paper.
