My journey in metal art is somewhat accidental. My career started with mechanical systems and working with designers and engineers. I have visions on how things could be made to suit a purpose or improved on, which led to designing and creating items to be aesthetically pleasing. Having taken an early retirement, I now dedicate some of my time to making my artistic visions a reality.
My metal art is a combination of different skills from metal forming and forging. Often I will combine with other mediums such as glass, wood and stone. I recycle a lot of material to create my metal art because the creative vision comes from the different shapes seen in some objects. Some of my earlier works were predominantly wrought iron designs. Garden arches, gazebos and wrought iron furniture were the main focus. Function and form all had a place in the designs. More recently I am inspired by the area I live in and the animals I encounter.
Sometimes I work with my talented wife Ann. She is an accomplished glass artist and there are often collaborations of our work. I am always looking for ideas and inspiration, and am always open to creating individual pieces of art to suit your needs and ideas.
