Photos: from the dust of the earth

From the dust of the earth: Ronald Blythe (above), artist, writer, and Church Times columnist, with the sculpture of his head created by the artist Jon Edgar. Mr Blythe sat for seven hours, over the course of two mornings, at his home in Wormingford, Essex. In a column earlier this year, he pondered: "How is it that the sculptor can not only draw out my face, but my experience - even something akin to my soul?" Seeing the clay taken away to be fired, he was left feeling "very Etruscan: both fragile and lasting" (Word from Wormingford, 28 March)
