Metalwork

After graduating, I pursued professional training and gained certificates in gas welding (North West Welder Training Centre), plasma-cutting (Myers Welding, Leeds) and bronze casting (Royal Academy, London) so that I could make work using these skills.

For public art commissions, however, I usually collaborate with expert fabricators, which is generally more cost-effective and expedient. These include Luke Lister Blacksmiths & Fabrication Engineers (lukelister.co.uk) in Stockport, Cheshire; Castle Fine Arts Foundry in Oswestry (www.bronzefoundry.co.uk) and Marine Fabrications in Birmingham (www.marinefabrications.co.uk)
