Crow

'Crow' I chose this shape after watching the crows in my back field and garden. There was a flock of them looking for food. I have also recently applied to Delamore Arts sculpture park for next year, so fingers crossed that I will be there for the 2020 exhibition.

Stainless Steel Dragonfly

This is a small dragonfly made from stainless-steel. I have made it from 4 knives, spoon, teaspoon, ball-bearings, cutlery handle and an asortment of stainless steel rods. Each dragonfly is unique, so dimensions can change slightly depending on the knives I use. This dragonfly is meant for the outdoors. Dragonfly reference photos courtesy of @joaomsbento on Instagram

'Wesley' the Ermington Rooster

At the end of June this year I went to photograph and video my local rooster called 'Wesley' owned by my neighbour in the village of Ermington. I had the idea that I would like to create a sculpture and in the crowing position. I spent a good couple of hours watching and photographing Wesley and the hens, as I tried to get measurements and photos of him in different aspects. After a while, to my delight he started to crow, striking this pose you see before you. He was calling back to a neighbouring cockerel. It was enjoyable to make this as I get a lot of cutlery and it feels great to put it all to good use. In particular I like the feathers closest his tail as they show off lots of different patterns that I see on cutlery handles. This piece took me at least 2 weeks to make.

I have made this as my show piece for RHS Rosemoor's 'Winter Sculpture Exhibition' in the gardens. There it will be for sale from November 14th - January 31st

Wesley was a cross between a 'Welsummer' and a 'Buff Sussex'

Small dragonfly with iridescent wing made from recycled metal

This is a small dragonfly with iridescent wings. I have made it from 4 knives, spoon, teaspoon, ball-bearings, cutlery handle and an asortment of stainless steel rods. Each dragonfly is unique, so dimensions can change, depending on the knives I use. This dragonfly is meant for the indoors, because I have varnished the wings to protect the heat tempered colour effect. The reference photo I used is courtesy of @joaomsbento of Instagram
