I love rearranging old tools and bits of metal and having them welded to make sculptures.
I start by gathering a whole lot of pieces of metal from my back shed and playing with the pieces on the ground. I keep rearranging them until I am happy with the layout. Whilst lying on the ground the metal pieces look ordinary but once the metal is welded a transformation happens and the work comes alive.
So lately I have been creating a whole series of amazing figurative sculptures.
Because the metal I am using is often very old the figurative sculptures can look as if from antiquity.
I favour a minimal approach to my sculptures. They often seem to work best by keeping them very simple.
I love these works and feel inspired to keep creating and keep experimenting.
