Female Hare – The Chased –
The hare is a wonderful creature, wild and untameable. When you see them running you can’t help but think these animals were purposefully engineered to be fast. Seeing their bodies lengthen and then shorten so majestically and so rapidly is an amazing sight. They use their speed to survive, whether it is to run […]
Little Owl IV (I spy)
I had come across a few images of little owls looking downwards in this way, displaying their curious and shrewd side that we commonly attribute to them. Something has attracted his attention, his prey perhaps. But rather than looking threatening, the little owl’s stance here makes his body rounder and even more endearing. […]
I was commissioned to sculpt a chicken for a birthday present. I had a lot of fun creating it. I like their industrious body language, the way they move. Both customer and the birthday girl were thrilled. In this particular case, the sculpture is also available as an edition.
The Hen is a bronze/copper resin, the legs and […]
I have always found it curious that a pear’s shape is synonymous with catastrophe. For me, as someone who loves to observe nature, and the form it gives to so many different things, I find the pear to be among the most pleasurable. Like the human body, so often an object of desire, and fascination […]
Little Owl I (Stretching a wing)
I find little owls so charming. I set about a sculpture, and I soon realised that, as with anything that is charming, a single view is incapable of capturing the whole picture. Owl I (Stretching a wing) was my first creation as part of the Little Owl series. I began […]
Little Owl III (4 o’clock)
For Little Owl III (4 o’clock) I wanted to reconnect with my broader feelings about nature. We think of nature as ruthless and unyielding. In spite of their vigour, little owls can also reveal their vulnerability and tenderness, and that is what I wanted to capture here.
The Little Owl is a […]
Little Owl II (Passing Time)
For Little Owl II (Passing time) I started with my own image of what a little owl looks like and represents. I believe Little Owl II embodies their pensiveness. This is a wise little owl.

Nature’s objects are so often beautiful, this is something often acknowledged. It occurred to me however that we do not always consider how pleasing they can appear when modified. For instance, an apple that has been cut open is transformed from one object of beauty into another.
The cut side is a marble resin and […]
I am drawn to shapes of all dimensions. With one model I was struck by how elegant and slender she was. Interestingly, her relaxed and almost dreamlike form seemed to influence the way I recreated her. It was a slow, but very satisfying process.
The sculpture has a vert-de-gris finish, it can also be done in […]
