My work explores the complex and fragile correlation between humans and the natural world, and how as a species we continuously alter and change through design our environment.

A number of pieces are directly influenced by historical, cultural and religious change; illustrating how as an enterprising social species, mankind’s industrial and technological advancements are at constant odds with its primitive ancient self-beliefs.Through my sculpture I showcase the graphic magnificence of the memories of both human industrial development and the stark reality of natural mortality.

The sculptures are made from copper and brass obtained from recycling services, scrap metal merchants and donation. Glaze textures are reached through reactive mixtures and all pieces are hand painted using a variety of different paints and finishes.
