I first found Heather Cornelius’ work at the Mad Hat Tea Company during a Valentines show. They had a lot of work there but Heather’s stood out to me like a lightening bolt. The sweetness of her sculptures was equally matched with inventiveness and charm and reality. I love how the folds of her body were so graceful and made being less than perfect actually quite beautiful. The face on the woman is especially endearing to me as it reminds a self confident mature woman who is at ease with her body.
We bought it immediately at the show and now it has been in a prominent place in our home for months and months. My husband and I went over to to her home and studio and were delighted to see several more wonderful works. I really liked the four foot ones and If I had enough I would love to put one in the garden.
