Reeds and Flutes, Portland stone 2014
Broken Tondo, Hoptonwood limestone 2014
Rotational disc, Portland stone 2015
2nd in a series of discs; a series that occupies my output currently. What drives the work on these is finding ways of expressing the ambiguities and paradoxes that make up the whole; in life, as in the work. They incorporate the broken edges and finished surfaces that manifest in much of my work, with their evocations of an imagined past.
Little Myth. Hoptonwood limestone/marble/mixed media
Like all my work this concerns my interest in and passion for history, pre-history, artefacts, archaeology, ruins, remains, memory & passing time. I make work not to depict but to resonate, as poetry evokes rather than describes.....................

Installed in Cambridge 3 years ago via Liverpool, Newcastle upon Tyne, Dorset and the Welsh borders. Travelled extensively in Europe and the U.S., worked as stonemason, carver, sculptor for the last 30 years, now free of 7a.m. January starts on church towers. My work reflects my interest in pre-history, archaeology, ruins and remains, artefacts, architecture, Outsider Art and the passing of time - also surfaces, patination, juxtaposed fragmented and polished elements, toolmarks & the evidence of process. I am also a lettercutter and interested in poetry, epigrams, interesting lines and their resonances. I have a workshop in Cambridge at Cheddar's Lane where visitors are welcome by appointment. I am interested in approaches for commissioned work, carved work, sculpture, indoor and outdoor pieces, lettercutting and bespoke memorials, of which I have cut and carved a considerable number over the years.
