One person's junk is my sculpture stash

Well the work on Fiona and my November exhibition has begun. The focus will be on stillness, the sacred, vessels, peacefulness and celebration. I have working designs for about 15 pieces at this stage – of course the number and the designs will change over the coming months – some things will work and some won’t, some materials will be there and some won’t – so it will be both planned and organic. However I did know that I would need quite a stash of salvaged timber and metal sheeting (stainless steel, copper, brass, rusted tin and aluminium) for the planned pieces. A recent roadside rubbish collection proved to be a bonanza for me.

As you can see from the photos above the metal I wanted was delivered in all shapes and sizes – from other people's junk I have all the metal I need.
