Behind The Pleat: The V&A Masks

Georgia hardinge sculptural mask

To help raise awareness for endangered species all over the world, Georgia Hardinge has collaborated with The Elephant Family to create sculptural masks for their prestigious Animal Ball. 

Using her signature structural techniques and experience with manipulating materials, Georgia has crafted the mask using card and boning. The Ara Ararauna Macaw is eye-catching with its vibrant coloured feathers in shades of turquoise and yellow. Hardinge has emulated these exciting hues, producing a bold, statement piece.
