    The response to the insect sculptures was immense when they were displayed at New Designers part 1 2013. Lots of new ideas were generated from the conversations that took place at the event, watch this space.

  2. 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.

    Charred maple, steel, brass and copper

    Started making all the brass sprung loaded pistons and other thingamajigs. Starting to get a feel for the scale of this piece (massive). Next I have to assemble all the wing mounts which means soldering steel… yay! Well here goes.
