Summary

Summary: 
A UK artist has developed a product for creative education that will enable the user to unlock their own creative potential. This easy to use sculpture kit allows anyone to create a head out of clay, regardless of previous sculpting experience. The inventor seeks commercial agents and distributors.

Description

Description: 

A UK established sculptor has been involved in the creative industries since 1996 and has produced some of the most innovative sculptures across the UK. Due to the lack of innovation in visual art teaching, he has developed a kit, which enables users to easily access their creative skills, creating head sculptures. The kit comprises a re-usable plastic skull shaped armature, ears, eyes, all made out of recycled plastic manufactured in the UK. The kit also includes a DVD, which guides learners through the creative process to enable them to create their own unique and highly personal sculpted head. The kit allows anyone to sculpt a head out of clay, regardless of previous sculpting experience.

The artist is seeking partners for commercial agency and distribution agreements with coverage across Europe to enable the product to be promoted into schools, colleges and communities as well as sales to the general creative public.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
This kit is considered a 'unique creative experience' rather than a toy or a game. It has been used and enjoyed by thousands of students in the UK from ages 6 years and older, there is no upper age limit – it is an excellent activity in care homes for the elderly. As well as being a creative/ sculptural aid, it is also beneficial in boosting self-esteem and self-confidence. It has been used to great acclaim in mental health facilities to combat depression and self-image issues. It can also be used in a cross curricula method to combine sculpture with creative writing and personal / social /cultural education.

Partner sought

Cooperation area: 
Commercial agents and distributors are sought who can actively promote, sell and distribute the creative kit. Of particular interest is the education market and also healthcare facilities, as well as the general retail market.
