Pewtersmith and Sculptor
Through my sculptures and homeware, I aim to create beautiful, intriguing pieces that enhance the enviroment where they are placed and the life of the person who has chosen it.
There are two distinctive elements to my work Sculpture and Homeware.
My Sculpture the current series being called ‘Home,’ inspired by the natural world around me and the concept of home not as a house made of bricks. But as when I saw in the rainforest, a dancing line of colour on the forest floor as the leafcutter ants carried the cut off petals and leaves and marched back in single file to their nest, their ‘Home.’
The sculptures explore this concept through pushing the boundries of working with pewter and combining it with the concrete, to create refined unique one-off pieces that are designed to intrigue, entice and be heirlooms of the future.
My homeware also has a very sculptural style to it creating fascinating focal points whether on a dining table or a desk. Fluidity and movement are the key elements in my work and I use the material properties of the pewter and my expertise of over 25 years of working with it to capture these principles and push pewter into a realm of contemporary design.
