Construction of Mariners Way Passage House

It has been quite a journey from the unraveling of the Mariners Way ball, the cleaning, the re-knotting and now the execution of the new form; the passage house. There were a number of factors against me as I now have less rope available and even less time to construct it in. I wanted to stay true to my original idea that included an entrance and exit of the ...

Unraveling the Mariners Way ball

Last month I went back to the University of Exeter and unraveled the 1,300metres of knotted rope which is going to be changed into another sculpture along the Mariners Way walk; a passage house.

It was a great experience and with ...

Overseer of Students Sculpture at The University of Exeter

From May 2012 to February 2013 I have been helping the Art Society of Exeter University to design and create their new sculptural idea of a peacock. The brief for the project was to utilize as much recycled material as possible and create an object or animal and display the final piece on campus. The construction of the new Forum building had finished in May 2012 ...

Studio Update: December 2012

Hello, At the moment it is difficult to display finished pieces as I am currently making work so I thought I’d update my blog with some shots of my studio and make comments about the work. In the background is my first oil painting in over three years! Realising how long it had been I decided to have a month of colour mixing before I got started on this ...

Blog Update: Printing

Hello, In the past few months I have created some new work with a different medium; print. The first piece I made was by using a process called photo etching. The idea was to encapsulate the large charcoal drawing I made inside St. Anne’s Chapel into a smaller etching and make an edition of it. After going to a day’s training at Double Elephant ...
