An interview with

Wilfrid Wood

Wilfrid is a sculptor, of heads mostly. His approach lies somewhere between no-nonsense, and nonsense. And on his head, he wears a pair of Carnegies in Dark Turtle.

We asked him some questions about his bits and bobs and badinage and spectacles and everything in between. And he obliged, in a manner of speaking.

Cubitts: What word would people use to describe you?
Wilfrid: Hairy.

C: What three words would you use to describe yourself?
W: Anxious, pessimistic, obsessive.

C: What is the most beautiful thing in the world?
W: My boyfriend’s feet.

C: Why do you sculpt?
W: To get away from drawing.

C: Tell me a story about yourself in 10 words or less.
W: I painted two people today.

C: What do you want to be when you grow up?
W: A musician.

C: What three words would you use to describe your spectacles?
W: A necessary evil.

C: ‘My spectacles make me feel…’
W: Disorientated.

It's not quite what we were looking for, but we'll take it. See more of Wilfrid's bits and bobs here.
