'Heart of the Matter'
25 x 7 x 25 cm.
I see myself in the tradition of artist makers, carving original pieces either to commission or for exhibition.
I work predominantly in stone and wood because they are durable, lovely to carve and have their own innate beauty. The ideas behind my sculptural work are often influenced by organic forms, material and the environment. I am interested in the geometric structures, patterns, symmetry and proportion found in nature. Other pieces have an historical element to them, either on a personal level or as part of the commissioning process with the client.
