Please contact me to discuss what you have in mind. Here is a selection of some past commissions:
This was the point where I found out
1- If the gantry would lift 500kg
2- If the series of bolts I have holding the ring together would be sufficiently strong to support the sculpture.
3- How it would look standing up.
A Pass on all three,a big relief!
Assembling the 34 pieces that make up one of the three ring that make up ” the family”
Shaping the ring after first assemblage
This tea cup was made as publicity for the Fish Creek Tea Cosy Festival. The road signs were given to me by the shire for the re-commissioning of the Commonwealth games fish, another project but as they were steel instead of aluminium they were not suitable. They worked perfectly for this Rosalie Gascoigne-esk bit of fun. I now rests in the community garden at Fish Creek.
This sign was carved from a slab of local cypress macrocarpa. Very pleased with the shadowing at this time of day.
Grand Designs house assemblage. I was asked by Mary and Peter Reidel to come up with some thing to fill this space above the doors in their Fish Creek house that was featured on Australian Grand Designs.
I chose the assemblage of rusted panels from a fridge pulled from the water at Foster Beach and wire frames made from old red gum garden edging and emu wire fencing.

This mirror was a challenge to design as it had to fit on a plain plaster wall of a house with conventional wood work trim. It sits behind a Scandinavian dinning setting so the whole setting had little in common with what I usually make. The room is hung with some sepectacular aboriginal paintings. I have tried to keep the color and the lines of the blackwood frame clean and simple with cuts around the internal edge to give it a totem feel.
This table was designed to sit in the entrance way of a beautiful house at Cape Liptrap. The legs are made from flattened corrugated iron and reflect the poles that are a feature in the house. The weathered Yellow stringybark for the top has a simular feel to the texture of driftwood which ties in with the window above which looks out over the pounding ocean.
