Sculpture

In some ways I came late to sculpture. In other ways, perhaps those plastic construction kits and Meccano sets I revelled in when I was growing up laid the groundwork for the work I do now.

I work mainly with what the 'art world' terms 'found objects'. And in fact the great majority of my material is found washed up on the beaches close to my home.

As far as I know, the technique I use for glass construction is unique to me. I use (almost exclusively) sea glass found on the beaches around my home and I have had much comment on the beauty of the work but I also get some concerned questions about it's durability. Well, as with any piece of glass the work has a fragility about it, but as for durability? The first large figure I made in glass was shown in Athens and on Hydra, travelled at various times by ship, taxi and donkey (yes, really) and has now been standing outside on somebody's terrace in all weathers since 2001. I think it's pretty durable!
