Coming from a background of ceramics I have always been interested in form and was delighted to discover that chicken wire can be modelled in a similar way to clay, with the advantage of integral strength. I’m also glad to be released from the tyranny of time since chicken wire doesn’t dry out however long I leave it (more time for the grandchildren). In my work I try to capture the spirit of the animal, to celebrate its life and movement. I’ve also been fulfilling commissions for some Nativity figures which are site-specific, and for an angel and a Muntjak deer (not together!).
