Aston Martin Wants Four Clay Model Apprentices

Posted by


Aston Martin is looking for four apprentices for a four-year clay modeling apprenticeship starting in 2015.

The apprenticeship is a partner program with Walsall College.

By the end of the four-year program, apprentices will take designs from a concept sketch to a full-scale model with a complete interior and exterior.

This is like the story of the starlet that gets hired by a film studio after a producer spots her at a lunch counter: Aston Martin is offering a four-year clay modeling apprenticeship, helping design students to become professional automotive clay sculptors.

Car Body Design notes that following the four year apprenticeship, apprentices then have the opportunity to move higher up the ladder at Aston Martin.

Aston Martin Design Director Marek Reichman: “Clay sculpting remains an integral part of the design process at Aston Martin and is vital in helping the Design Team visualise future models.


“We’re looking for creative young people with a keen interest in the motor industry and a passion for all things Aston Martin.

“This is an incredible opportunity for talented and ambitious individuals to join one of the world’s most respected automotive design teams and work on new cars that, I’m sure, will be admired around the world.”

Details on the program are located on Aston Martin’s website.
