Jon Cove, the artist behind these amazing creations is profoundly deaf and has a visual impairment, speaking through a sign interpreter he said he was thrilled to hear that his work had caused such a stir in York. Jon says, "I use my hands to feel their head and hair, and this helps me see what they look like. This helps me to create my sculptures, which I often base on people I know, or people who work with me."
Jon's work will be on show and for sale along with other work by over 30 other local artists and makers at the Flare Contemporary Art and Craft Market at the Guildhall, St Helen's Square, York on Thursday Dec 6th, 11am - 8pm. Entrance to the event is free.
