  • Roye England's Modelling Notebooks - Part 9 Plants and Flowers

    Stephen Williams, Roye England

    Issue 133 (2002)



    In this penultimate set of extracts from Roye Englad's modelling notes, we focus upon one of the most remarkable of his skills and perhaps the facet of his modelling that attracts most attention and admiration from the general visitors to Pendon - his ability to model plants and flowers. Here. perhaps, we find the ultimate expression of his skill in observing the real world; in developing - by experimentation - ways of capturing the qualities of real plants in miniature; and the painstaking application of those methods to produce miniature gardens of unrivalled finesse. However, not all his miniature plants were modelled exactly. Where the plant itself offered little in the way of distinctive structure, more impressionistic approaches could be used to effect. Here is a short explanation of how he modelled small white flowers - the species not being recorded - for the front garden of Middlecot in the Chapel Group.
