Process


01

Study

Researching, observing and sketching the nuances of a subject are integral when beginning the sculpture process.

02

Reclaim

Blacksmiths, scrapheaps, mechanics and farmyards are my hunting grounds when gathering reclaimed metals.

03

Construct

Wild Sculptures are forged using a combination of techniques to manipulate the scrap metal. Mostly blood, sweat and tears!
