Nottinghamshire artist creates Shaun the sheep sculpture for charity
Nottingham artist Julie Vernon has launched her sculpture of Shaun the Sheep in Bristol as part of the Shaun in the City fundraising trail.
Julie's design competed with more than 2000 applications and is one of 70 of the models to be displayed in Bristol with each one boasting an individual design by separate artists.
Vernon has said that her design was built upon the inspiration of texture and volume.
The sculpture took 6 weeks to make and was created with 16,500 glass balls and 8,500 hand-cut tiles.
This is the second time Julie has completed a sculpture for the Animations studio.
The campaign has been created by the same team that managed to raise over £2 million for Bristol Children's Hospital in 2013 with Gromit Unleashed.
Julie’s last sculpture named ‘Golden Gromit’ raised £30,000 for charity and hopes that this latest piece will manage to raise even more money.
The auction will take place in October 2015.
