I will have a range of different sculptures for the garden and house in either copper, copper verdigris, brass or aluminium. For the garden I have plant stakes that look good in pots and in the border and weather happily whatever the elements they especially come into their own nestling in grasses or tall plants - these are a range of birds hares and dancing figures on stakes - larger owls and cats that can be screwed to the top of a fence and outline against the sky and birds that can hang from bushes/trees/pergolas. For inside the objects are tabletop size from the small to around 400mm high - I do various birds (from wrens to owls), hares, butterflies, the human form and musicians. All are mounted on beautiful and interesting pieces of polished wood or stone.
I work mainly with copper, brass and aluminium cutting out and forming subjects that interest me or I am asked to produce. I love form and movement and try to represent this in my work. I source interesting bases whether they be stone or wood and try to give my metal pieces different finishes - verdigris, heating copper to colour it, planishing, hammering, scoring the surface to create reflective patterns.
I have done many commissions and relish them - people have asked for children's characters, pets (many dogs), a penguin, elephant and lion - and am happy to consider anything within reason!
