Spider – Martin Jones


The spider was made by Martin for his ‘Final Major Project’, the last unit of the 3rd year. It is mostly sculpted, moulded and cast in translucent resin. Colour is added with an airbrush and a little hair punching adds realism to the finished model.
Martin now manages the workshop at Spartan Games in Somerset. His experience from studying here helped him to improve the way that they design, mould and cast their products. During his studies Martin completed ‘live’ briefs for The National Trust and work experience with the ‘Borrowers’ movie that was made at the time. Martin graduated in 2009, winning an award at the New Blades exhibition that year that helped him to establish his career.
