metal work, sculpture & wall pieces

 

I studied at the Royal College of Art and had a studio in London for about ten years before returning to live and work in Devon. My sculptures feature the use of copper, brass, and steel, often incorporating glass, gold leaf and patination. The sculptural objects are often made using silversmithing techniques creating raised hollow forms chemically patinated, with additions of gold leaf and coloured waxes. Wallpieces are generally fabricated mixed metal works again finished using the above techniques.


Recent large scale works have been created from recycled steel, primarily discarded oil tanks. The rusted and degenerated tanks are cut, formed and fabricated into a series of large metal ‘canvases’.


The work has an underlying concern with ritual use and empowerment of the ‘object’.
