New sculpture titled Immutatus – upcycled roll cage and boules

By , 03/05/2015 8:45 pm

Immutatus is a sculpture created from recycled steel tubing, steel rod and pétanque balls. I have allowed part of the surface to rust, whilst other areas have been spayed with a variety of colours. I built up the layers of paint and then in areas I used a grinder cut back – sometimes right back to metal.

I have worked on this over many months as I kept changing my mind; a layer paint, leave it for a while, another layer of paint, grind back, repaint, let it rust, repaint and so on.

Yellow Hat – metal head sculpture

By , 09/27/2011 2:00 pm

This is a real fun piece and I really enjoyed making this. It is another sculpture that almost made it’s self – in that I looked at assortment of parts and see a hat, hair and a head. And it is always a good feeling to recycle found objects to create art.

Combine 1 – sculpture created from combine harvester

By , 09/27/2011 1:55 pm

Combine 1 is created from many blade holders originally used on a combine harvester. Four blades are welded together to create a diamond then the six diamonds are joined and finally mounted on the beech base. I recently exhibited it at my Lost & Foundry 2 exhibition at Williams Art in Cambridge.

Steel Life

By , 09/27/2011 11:27 am

This sculpture is created from a collection of farm tools and parts that date back over a lifetime of work on the farm.

I am a huge fan of the late and great sculptor David Smith and based my dissertation on his and Caro’s work and methods. And I freely admit he has influenced much of my work.
