Sculptor, designer & maker

 

Much of my childhood was spent in my father's workshop learning to work with wood and metal to create objects, and this has had a fundamental influence upon my work, both as designer/maker and fine artist.

My practice is diverse, exploring the relationship between concept, aesthetics and functionality, through the mediums of sculpture, furniture and installation. 

Taking my inspiration from the materials I use and their response to the forces and processes I subject them to, my work varies between large-scale industrially-themed installations where the outcome is largely determined by material properties and the laws of nature, to smaller, more 'designed' objects, where functionality has played more of a role in the creative process.
