Event description

Description

With two iconic death masks in Highgate Cemetery East (his father, Great Train Robbery mastermind Bruce Reynolds, and Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren), Nick Reynolds is one of the most renowned sculptors in the field.
The extraordinary story behind making the death mask of John Joe ‘Ash’ Amador, the 402nd person to be executed in Texas since the reintroduction of the death penalty in 1982, is worthy of an evening in itself.
This talk is a rare opportunity to learn about this fascinating subject, enlivened by Nick’s highly entertaining anecdotes. The whole process and approach will be described in detail, and lavishly illustrated. Nick will also be showing a film of him making a mask.
Nick is also well-known as the harmonica player in Alabama 3, who are famous for Woke Up This Morning, the theme to The Sopranos. His previous life included an education in Mexico, while his father was on the run, and serving in the Navy as a diver in the Falklands War.
