Tall thin figures with economy of detail are one of the trademarks of this work.  The spaces between and around the figures either standing singly, in pairs or threes create an interest and a dynamism which are as important as the forms themselves. Most of these figures may be enjoyed both inside and outside - making the most of your space and providing a focal point which works well with the surrounding shapes, whether architectural or natural trees and water.

LARGER FORMS
 

These figures hold a strong presence when displayed in singular, however when developed in pairs and groups the negative space and flow of light around and between them give a sense of interaction and movement.

Starting from 0.8m in height, and no upper size limit, these forms are equally striking as indoor statement pieces or as outdoor sculptures.

Cast in resin and metals, the sculptures are robust enough to be permanently displayed outdoors, while light enough to allow for ease of movement and positioning without the use of heavy machinery, making them ideal for installing in gardens and spaces with limited access.

SMALLER FORMS

These figures are created in wax, naturally taking on the curves and feel of the artists hands.  They are finished with a hot blade to heighten the planes and detail and then cast into either Hallmarked silver, bronze, or a coldcast metal resin.

Each one is mounted with care on a plinth ranging from marble to ebony, teak, oakheart or driftwood to complement its character and form.

Up to 20ins tall. many are unique piece, but some are limited editions of up to 12.
