Here are some detail photos of a recent sculpture in progress. Building up layers of earth pigments. Picks up the detail in the texture of the sea worm holes that pepper he piece of wood. I think it is a piece of old oak. Probably a fragment of ships timber. It is very dark, suggesting it has been on the sea bed under mud for a long time, until the recent storms on the East coast.

Here is a large winged figure, Guardian Angel. It has a wing span of over a meter. The two pieces of wood that create the figure were both found on the river Alde at low tide. Worn beautifully over a very long period of time. Many tides carving the forms.
I will be showing this piece along with others at the INK festival in April, at The Cut in Halesworth, Suffolk.

This is a new small sculpture of a mother and child. It is a piece of black oak wood that was washed up on the high tide at Aldeburgh. After all he stormy weather we have been having I had a good morning collecting elements. Sadly there were a number of Dogfish washed up. Beautiful fish and a sorry sight to see. I did collect a number of interesting pieces of wood which are now slowly drying out, ready for consideration in new work.

Mother and Child. 12cm high. Exc. base.

I have 4 new sculptures showing with a gallery in Battersea, London, called Knight Webb. Great to be showing work in a vibrant, creative part of London.


I will be showing some new sculptures at the INK festival 2019 @ The Cut in Halesworth, Suffolk. 12th - 13th - 14th April. It is a really exciting programme of theatre and the arts.

I am getting together a growing group of small figures. Four inches or smaller. All different types of wood. And one in bone. I have recently found some really interesting pieces of bone, washed up on high tides.
I will be expanding the grouping of small figures. They have a power that goes beyond their size, and they are becoming an intimate reflection of my exploration of the human form.
