I’m in the running to be I have been commissioned to make a sculpture to be sited at my old art college in Cheltenham. This is my maquette of my proposed work - a 3m diameter spherical nest made from 1.5m lengths of steel tube.
Today I began research for my project on Diglis Island, Worcester. The project is one of six taking place around the Mid-Worcestershire Ring (a route created by the re-opened waterways between Worcester and Droitwich) run by the Canal & River Trust.
Over the next year I’ll be developing a project for the Island, looking at its history, uses, possibilities and people.
Engine of Growth was installed for a festival weekend in Peterborough on 20-21 August. The installation invited people to vote on the fate of a sculpture in the park as a way of creating discussion around the treatment of sculptures in the collection. The weekend was very productive with nearly 400 votes cast and some fantastic, lively conversations.

Not Here opened last night at Radiant Space, Plymouth.
My work for the show is Refuge, a large nest made from found materials bound together with a continuous line of rope. The work was partially built for the opening night and I will be completing the build over the next few days, inviting visitors to bring objects to be included in the nest.
