Here are some elements in the studio. Collected over time. The bottom piece is an elbow from an old fishing boat in Aldeburgh. A nice find over the Easter period.

Here is an area of drying wood that I have collected over quite a period of time. It can take a few months to dry the larger pieces. When they are nearly dry, I select some pieces and bring them into the studio for consideration. Not all pieces make the grade, but most seem to have their place.

Had a good afternoon collecting material at my 'outdoor studio' on the River Alde. Hadn't been for a few weeks, so I found several very interesting pieces. All now pressure washed and will be stored in the outdoor area of the studio to dry out slowly. This process can take months.

Always inspiring being out in the landscape. Lots of wildlife, sounds, smells and fresh air.

Here is my selection of ground earth pigments.
Adding depth and natural colour to my work.


Here are some detail photos of a recent sculpture in progress with 4 layers of different art pigments.

AMBER and other finds...

Had a good morning on the beach and walking in Dunwich Heath. Had some good finds.
A very luck piece of amber. Plan to set off for a late afternoon beach walk today too, while the sun is still out. Fingers crossed for some more interesting finds.
