All my sculptures start with a lengthy design process evolving over many weeks using the lightbox and layout paper to meticulously refine curve, line and expression.

After realising a design on paper I trace and transfer the drawing onto a solid block of plaster and begin the carving process with chisels, saws and surforms and files until I'm happy with a form from which I can take a mould to cast a ceramic edition,  and as with many recent works also cast an edition in bronze.
