  Sculpture and Light:

My sculptures are informed by my experience as an Artist, Painter and continued practice as Blacksmith.  Using traditional forging and metalworking techniques, I aim to magnify elements of movement, pattern, scale and structure found in the natural world that inspires me. 
I also enjoy working with colour, textures and the reflective nature of different metals and materials.  My intention is to stimulate a feeling for these qualities but also in relation to the mutable and interactive effects of natural and artificial light as a medium. 
My fascination for the transcendent and emotional qualities of light is inspiring new work and investigation through sculptural installation and product design.

Metalwork:

The elements that are integral to my artistic practice are as relevant as design and functionality in my work as a Blacksmith.   My intention is to combine the elegance and technique of decorative craft, with a contemporary edge.  I am skilled at working with a variety of ferrous and non-ferrous metals and enjoy exploring their different qualities of malleability and surface finish.  The process of forging hot metal allows for its natural movement, as if I were ‘drawing’ with it.  Each hammer blow informs the next evolving into a tactile as well as visual piece. I work closely with clients to meet their site specific and artistic requirements to deliver bespoke and unique solutions for interior and exterior environments. 

Exhibition:

‘Shivelight’ ~  Contains Art, East Quay, Watchet, Somerset.
March 28th – April 12th 2015  Open: 11am-4pm
The illusory medium of light is at once captivating and transformative.  Following on from a culmination of site-specific experiments, the container will be animated by a playful use of light and materials, distorting the space.
An interactive and sensory experience, this is an invitation to curiously engage with our perceptions, reflections and emotional response to light.
