Save Your Heart, Excercise!

I have just delivered my latest work to the foundry. Strictly speaking this is an old work which I did for a client some years ago. She has an interesting story. I spotted a discarded colour supplement on the floor of my studio which had been placed there to clear up a wax spill. What caught […]

The Alpine Sculpture

“Kara”, a female of a French gun dog breed called a Korthal Griffin, turned out to be the most endearing dog which took to us immediately upon our arrival at her French home.  She has had an interesting history – she was rescued as a youngster off the mountains nearby and had been living wild with […]

Anthony Gormley

Well here’s a surprise in the Lake District. I guess that is it either a Gormley or ‘After Gormley’ couldn’t get close enough to see a signature. Like the next work it is all about ‘location’! This one is a little different viewed from other angles. Quite clever! Full of holes in it if you […]
