Dragonfly

Dragonfly is a hybrid with influences taken from both Dragonflies and Damselflies. The 806 holes in the wings are hand cut  and then carved to create veining. The Abdomen section is turned from Purple Heart the mechanical parts are all turned from Brass.

Cuttle

Started work on a piece of work for New Designers One Year On, this will be a large Steampunk inspired Cuttlefish. Here I have began carving the main part of the form from Burr Maple, I really like the swirling pattern of this wood. The head and tentacle/leg sections will be a separate element made of metal and mixed media and will be attached later.

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.
