Metalwork, Sculpture, Wall Work



I create one-off etched wall pieces and sculptural forms from a variety of metals, including copper, gilding metal and silver. Through fine-tuning a variety of etching techniques,

I have developed a rich ‘palate’ of textures to decorate the surface of my metalwork. These expressive surfaces are accentuated by areas of patination, electro-plating and metal leaf.

My ideas stem from the built environment, in particular from the scarred and eroded surfaces of buildings. Towering skyscrapers and the shadows they cast on each other and the landscape, influence the forms and silhouettes of my pieces.



I have just returned from London having exhibited at the new Crafts Council event; ‘Origin’ ‘The London Craft Fair’ at Somerset House, London.

Also recently shown four new sculptural Vessels at ‘SOFA Chicago’; an international collectors show for Sculptural Objects and Functional Art, with the Bluecoat Display Centre 9 – 12 Nov 2006 at Navy Pier, Chicago.

I have recently been awarded the Crafts Council ‘Development Award’
