Rusty Globe

Posted: August 10, 2015 in Glass, sculpture, steel

A commission for a piece of outdoor sculpture personalised for the client.
The T frame steel globe has a rust coat treatment to give it a Cortain steel look. The glass panel across the diameter of the steel globe has a world map sandblasted into it then small cast glass domes in blue glass placed on the map to the specification of the client highlighting places they have lived or have connections with.

Fire water and Gas

Posted: June 15, 2015 in Manhole covers, sculpture

For the LAT[E]WI @ Safehouse exhibition I presented cast manhole covers.
The maze of tunnels, waterways and drains is hidden to us, though we are never far from one or more. From original Victorian sewers to modern cable channels these permeate all aspects the city and a very necessary part of city living used by everybody irrespective of class, gender, age or race. These pieces with their connection to the Aylesbury estate will be a lasting memory of the estate itself for it is due to be demolished in the coming years to make way for expensive apartments. These apartments will not house the original occupants who are being moved out of the area, they will be beyond the financial range of those living in the vicinity at present, this process of reallocation is in general terms called social cleansing or if you prefer gentrification.
The network of channels and tunnels will most probably remain to service the new buildings but the manhole covers will probably be replaced, thus erasing every thing that was above ground.
I took moulds from manhole covers and cast them in unlikely materials metals silicon plaster wax and glass. I situated them in unlikely places within the dilapidated house that was the gallery.

A full size Mausoleum to commemorate the passing of my friend but also to remind people of the inevitably of death for all of us. A 5 minute video of Gizmo and the park we visited is presented within the structure, viewed through a window with water running (crying) down the surface. It also looks at the connections and benefits between animals and people.

Last piece of the first term

Posted: December 10, 2013 in sculpture

This piece I didn’t really like and think it would have been better as a very minimal and threatening piece. But as they say you live and learn, and one thing I’ve learnt is that you shouldn’t hurry your work which is also hard to do when you have so much to do. People think being a student is easy, well it may be but it aint if you want to get the most out of it.
