Student’s sculpture goes down a storm

June 13, 2014

A one-off sculpture created by a talented art student from West Cheshire College has been impressing the visitors at the World Museum Liverpool since it was unveiled a few weeks ago.

The ant sculpture, designed by Jessica Holgate, has been given pride of place in the Museum’s Bug House.

Jessica, 19, from Chester, who is studying a BTEC Extended Diploma in Art and Design, said: “I am overwhelmed that people visiting the museum have liked my sculpture so much.

“I worked very hard to get the sculpture finished and I was very pleased to hear that it was going to be displayed in the museum.” 

Laura Carter, Keeper in the Bug House at the World Museum Liverpool, said: “We are absolutely thrilled with the piece. It has fitted in perfectly with our theme and can be seen in our leaf ant cutter section.

“The response has been great and all the visitors have been very impressed with the sculpture.”

Louise Condon, Art Tutor at West Cheshire College, said: “We are absolutely delighted that the sculpture has been such a success.

 “Jessica worked so hard on her ant sculpture and it is great to hear so many people saying how much they like it.

“To have a sculpture on display at such a well-known museum is such an achievement for Jessica and I am very proud of her.”
