Enough is enough I'm going home again!
I have over 20 years of experience and success in the creation of high quality artwork designed to withstand the rigours of the public space. Works have been in 3 dimensions, as well as ground and wall based relief. Over the years I have made new works for town centres, community gardens, public recreation grounds, local authority buildings, housing association developments as well as libraries, hospitals and health centres.

The snow has now cleared and we can get on with the job.
Recesses are being cut to fit the bronzes.

I'd been having a few problems with unsolicited spam comments being left on my blog. I changed my security settings to block this happening. Unfortunately I seemed to have blocked all comments. I've now changed my settings again so hopefully people will be able to leave comments on my blog once again. Look forward to hearing from you!

This was the sight that greeted us this morning on arrival at the studio.
Due to the access road to the studio being slightly treacherous we decided to postpone work today and headed home.....
... but couldn't resist doing this first!
Some of the bronzes have now been cast and I have applied an initial patina. There is still a bit of work to do on these but I'm fairly happy with how they look.

An ammonite and axe head appear on the first stone. A wee bird flies off the last stone to represent the future.
Moulds waiting to be filled with resin, these will go to the foundry.

The clays are nearly finished. I've started working on the second last one and will hopefully get these to the foundry by the end of this week.

This week I decided to make moulds from the first 7 roundels before the clay started to dry out and shrink. The rubber moulds are now ready and I will take resin casts from them in the next few days. These will go of to the foundry to be cast in bronze.
Work began to build Durham jail 1809.
