This piece was inspired by my late father in law Max. Braford bulls are strong and quiet in nature which encapsulates Max. He is mounted on a worn stair tread which represents his footsteps in life.

I have always have had an interest in all forms of art and being a boilermaker by trade I decided to explore my creative mind to create unique pieces of art from scrap metal . Whilst I do not have any tertiary qualifications, I do have 32 years of experience in the steel fabrication field. I have been using these skills over the last three years to express my artistic desire and creativity into three dimensional sculptures.
The main tools I use to sculpt are a mig welder, an anvil, a grinder and an oxy acetylene torch. I also add colour and patina to my pieces by the use of heat and or basic household vinegar, salt and water to give a rusted effect.
My goal as an artist is to make people appreciate the simple, neglected resources from which my creations are born.
