Armilliary Globe

 An armilliary sundial created from the last metal vestiges of a cart at Chateau Les Jaqueteaux.
It sits on top of an existing well which has been capped off, but will supply a fountain inside the globe after the wellhead has been built up to recuperate the water. This sculpture stands over 3 metres tall.

Something different again...
Ten wrought iron tea cups. I'm still sorting out the rest of their saucers, but we're nearly there.

Flowerbed

Not quite a sculpture, this is the result of being given a rusty old bed by my neighbour. I have used the head 'as is' and cut the foot to make the two sides. In the summer it makes a plant stand; maybe in the winter it could be used to store firewood. Slight modifications would convert it into a fancy garden chair.

Whale's Tail

Now for something completely different...a sculpture to be set into concrete at the end of an infinity swimming pool.
This uses two old plough blades, lots of re-bar and a handful of the biggest washers I could find.

Ducatti Speedster

I was recently asked to create ten 'surreal' vintage bikes, so even though it's a leap out of my usual style, I took up the chalenge. With the Tour de France passing right through my village. I felt that at least one of them needed to be a racer, so here we have a set of Ducatti exhausts to liven things up a bit. I hope my client will 'get it'...

Tubby Terrier



Smaller than most of my other dog sculptures, this terrier has a motorcycle petrol tank for his body, two forks for legs and a vintage saddle for his head.

Happy Bat

This roosting bat was created from two scythe blades, an axe head and a pair of rotovator blades. It can hang from a tree branch or from a ceiling joist. March 2014

Wall Lizard

A new lizard for the new year; this has similar construction to my previous examples, but is wall-mounted and measures two metres from nose to tail.

Marion's Peacock


Another peacock; this one is larger and more elaborate than the first, and incorporates a maize hopper and a tractor seat amongst other things.
