Climbing Silver Squirrel

This is recycled/upcycled metal wall art made from teaspoons, forks, masher, cutlery handles... The concept to create an outdoors wall art climbing red squirrel came in preparation for Delamore Arts sculpture exhibition, held every year during everyday of May 2019. I had not seen other artist hanging sculptures on walls or trees in the garden, so here is my idea. I chose the squirrel because it is a subject I have already spent considerable time studying. The photo was taken in Scotland by @freck66 of Instagram.
Dimensions: Aprox. 40cm length

Price: (Please refer to the right hand column under 'Portfolio')

Upcycled Wedding Bouquet

An upcycled wedding bouquet with a cycling theme

The design brief for this commission was to create a wedding bouquet with a cycling theme from bike parts. My starting point were the bike cogs which I turned into petals, rather like those of a rose. I have used spoons to cup the flower heads, and formed cutlery into the shape of a ribbon. This piece can be displayed as wall art.
