 early works

The Hatchery 1983

(one of about 4 linear sculptural works I created in the 80's.)

Recent SA Sculpture Show SA Gallery 1983
Purchased re: Maude Visard -Wholohan


Inspired by the rounded egg shaped pebbles
found at Sellicks Beach.
Created larger ones from timber on the lathe
They became 'the central characters'
in bolder 3D works using metal.
The concept drawn from a love of inventing fictitious machines ,
The architectural but organic nature of a birds nest
and a childhood love of creating cubby houses from whatever
we could find as kids
