Nautiforms

The idea of a life story is important to me. Giving the work an aged appearance helps to create meaning and invites  the viewer to ask questions. The Nautiform pieces are drawn from my love of shipwrecks and items of antiquity. The patinated surfaces are created through a process with which I have little control over once it has begun, as a result the piece is always an unpredicted surprise.

Hornet

The Hornet is an assemblage of hundreds of individual components. The machine like qualities are perfectly balanced by the wooden elements. The piece has a distinct character which is enhanced by the aged appearance which has given it a ‘life history’.

The wings are sprung loaded and are repositionable as are the legs to offer a variety of different poses.

Tri-pod

Inspired by gothic architecture, the Tri-pod saw the first introduction of a wooden element, the combination of the warm wood within the cold steel was a welcome one. The stylized form can be maneuvered into a variety of poses allowing it to be suited to its setting.
