Ed Hill Metal Art

‘Recycling metal into bespoke art’

I recycle because second-hand metal is an abundant material that I can find in many places, it also introduces a positive narrative of renewal and value to the discarded.

The metal is sourced from Plymouth and surrounding South Devon. I use a lot of cutlery and domestic wares from charity shops, as well as scrap steel from industrial units, farms and bike shops.

The work celebrates the wonder that animals bring to life. For anyone new to my sculptures they are realistic representations and I pay particular attention to their sense of movement, form and behaviour.

I love to connect with the beauty of creation. Twice a year I have an open day, at my workshop and gallery in Ermington, once in March and once in October. It is a great way to see how I work. You will see how I start from photos, drawings and progress to models and then metalwork.
