Ball and Chain
The Ball and Chain is symbolic of the tie that farmers have to their land. The curves are from horse-drawn cart rims cut in half. The rims, barbed wire and chain comes from a farm in Young NSW.Recycled Steel
To : Sculpture on the Farm
I have a background in structural steel fabrication, which has evolved into creating sculptures from discarded old scrap and new steel. I use old farm machinery in some sculptures, creating sentimental historical pieces. Recently I have been working with CorTen steel, to create more contemporary stylised sculptures.
I have been entering exhibitions in regional NSW, as well as Woolwich Sydney, for a few years. I have no formal training in art, but like to create sculptures that I find pleasing to the eye. I have won 2 awards and frequently sell pieces submitted to exhibitions and to interstate buyers.
My sculptures are in private collections in Queensland, New South Wales and the ACT,ß as well as being in public displays in NSW.
