Lecturer in Production & Design (Technical Arts)
Rorie’s career began as a ceramic artist and sculptor, before going on to work as a prop-maker for film and television productions. With a keen interest in history, he has also worked on, and appeared in, a number of History Channel documentaries as a reconstruction expert.
Rorie currently combines freelance work as a prop-maker and sculptor with his teaching work. His particular skills lie in life-casting, mould-making and prosthetics (the bloodier the better!). His time at the College is devoted to teaching prop-making and the dark arts of laser cutters, latex and plaster.
Rorie’s work shows a mastery of traditional sculpting techniques, but also an interest in adapting these to contemporary methods in order to meet the pressures of time and budget.
