My ideas start with observation, I really like to capture the beauty I see in the subject. But I also have to consider the materials, as they have a big part to play in the overall effect. Once a fortnight I go and collect them. Selecting what I need for the work in hand.
Here is some of my process.

|Sorting the cutlery at the workshop|
Quite a lot of cleaning up happens at this point. Of me and the artwork!
