Giblin’s sensual and striking sculpture is produced in ceramic then cast in bronze, translucent resin or cold cast metals. Her subject matter is portraiture and the human form, often involving detailed, overlapping, fragmented or abstracted imagery. The sculptor develops ideas from observation sketches, digital imagery and written works.
