Metal sculpture

An iron oxide romance...

In Spring 2014 I joined the metal sculpture class at Morley College's Henry Moore Sculpture Studio and began to make sculpture. I am loving it.

Except for the feather, all of the sculptures shown are made from rusty steel collected on my favourite beach on the Jurassic Coast in Dorset.

These rusty pieces may or may not be the last remnants of a section of a 'Mulberry Harbour', a floating platfrom used to move artillery and supplies from the Allied ships to the Normandy beaches for the D-Day landings in June 1944.
I like to think that this is true.

Radio receiver circuit diagram railings (2018)
(steel and polyester resin)

My new garden railings. The design is based on a 1940s AC mains superheterodyne valve radio receiver circuit diagram. I have always thought electronic circuit diagrams are beautiful and that the amazing obsolete technologies which got us where we are today need to be celebrated. Analoguepunk?
