I recently completed an outdoor piece for the Vistabella Landart Residencies in Spain November 2016, to make an environmental sculpture with the theme Enclave. It remains just outside the village of Vistabella del Maestraat in the mountains 50 miles from Castillon de la Plana.
Currently I am much interested in structures such as Wind Towers, Bottle Kilns and Dovecots - this type of architecture we probably dont see in our everyday lives. We used ceramic tiles to make the piece from the local Ceramics Industry near Valencia, and it allows the North Wind to blow through at the top, the small window will allow access to birds for shelter.
There is an Interview with photos in INSIDE ARTISTS Issue 6 Autumn 2016. Available to view online at: issuu.com/insideartists/. Pages 72 - 75.
I have recently finished making smaller versions of each of the five pieces of Up the Duff and they are now cast in bronze.
I showed 2 sculptures at the Arte Laguna Prize, the Arsenale Venice, 22.3. 15. - 24.15. 120 artists in seven categories were selected from around the world . www. firstname.lastname@example.org
- Jan 2015. Now & then is a recent interactive environmental artwork commissioned by the Woodland Trust (with Arts Council Funding.) It is sited at the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Woods at Normanton le Heath in Leicestershire . LE 672 The brief was to respond to the local archaeology discovered on site. It comprises a spiralling walkway down into the earth , a circle of natural indigenous bushes of special value to birds, surrounded by a ring of Oaks . It was planted and launched in Nov 2014 and is now growing.
