Sculpture

Having been brought up in a very rural setting,  I chose a career in horticulture however sculptural work using natural materials has become a very important part of my life over the last 15 years.  I use willow as well as other natural materials such as hazel, bramble, wild clematis, iris leaves, New Zealand flax, dogwoods, etc…  More recently I have begun to explore the use of natural material with ceramics.  My parents were ceramicists (my mother still is) so it is interesting to me that I have come full circle and now include their medium in my work.

In 2012 I was commissioned to create a 12 metre willow dragon in the grounds of the Bishops Palace, Wells.  This is a short interview about it.    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8txATHvmNo
