Cetacean Plume

This piece is the first in a new series based on the semi-abstract representation of leaping whale-like forms.

Cetacean means 'of the whale' or 'whale-like', and my sculpture has often made reference to the extraordinary beautify, power and mystery of these ancient animals.

Asthall Sphere

Simple spiralling pattern around the surface of a sphere. Originally carved for the first sculpture exhibition 'On Form' at Asthall Manor in 2002.

One of the great qualities of Kilkenny Limestone is that the surface can be worked in a number of different ways, from highly polished to rough and textured, and in many of my sculptures, including this piece, I use a combination of these finishes.

Aurelia IV

New work originally made for exhibition in 2004, the fourth in a series of sculptures exploring simple low relief around the surface of a form. This piece is now available in bronze in an edition of 3.

Amongst other interpretations, 'aurelia' is the name for a cocoon.
