After a long while away from the creation of new work, I am now enjoying a surge of energy and delight in the work I am producing.
Myself, my wife Carol and a group of friends took 3 examples of the new work up to the Helena Bay Gallery, one of the best in the country we believe. They thought they were worth displaying but the problem was, we hadn't decided on a name for the series or organised new tickets, boxes or a 'story' or how where, why and what were these strange new objects.
So, with a brainstorming session over excellent food and coffee's,we came up with the name 'Metamorphia'
This indicates the emergence of new work from recycled ebony enhanced variously with beef bone, brass, gold, thread, silver and other material yet to be decided upon.
I very much enjoy creating pure curves and flowing planes that seque into each other. The only straight lines on the sculpture are those I create using thin saw blades.
I believe that this series are unique in the particular utilisation of wood and bone that I employ and I hope that you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them.

Using beef bone, ebony and thread, I wanted to create objects with flowing lines that were somewhat out of the ordinary.
