As she begins the artwork, she explains that when sculpting from life, the process is much quicker than working from photographs. Time-lapse photography shows all the different stages, with Frances sculpting and reshaping and modelling the clay. She turns the bust around looking at it from all angles; each time she does one part it changes another part. What will Sir Derek Jacobi think of the final sculpture? Will he agree that it resembles him? This clip is from Making Art Work, a BBC compilation of short films following six UK-based leading artists as they create new artwork from scratch.
