Title: Captain William Wetherby


Captain William Wetherby - Steampunk Aviator is a reflection of my own thoughts of strength, determination and willingness to take on any challenge! Why not stand on a tower of strength and think of amazing possibilities! I thoroughly enjoyed bringing this idea to fruition, from the Captain’s very detailed Steampunk costuming and outfitting, through to the very courageous daredevil tower! This original one of a kind, mixed media sculpture was created from polymer clay, wire, fabrics, paint, wood & found objects.




Artist: Doreen Backway

Medium: Polymer clay/mixed media
