About me

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.

Ropewalk Gates and Railings Ready for Installation

The gates and railings for the Ropewalk in Barton will be installed next week. Prior to installation we have accelerated the oxidization process on the Corten Steel. Corten is designed to rust and will eventually form its own protective surface and stabilise. This process can take anything up to 3 years to complete. We have developed a method of accelerating the process so when it arrives on site it will have the appearance of the final surface colour.
