    Currently working on a series of projects, I was really pleased with how the hermit crab had turned out so I thought I would have a go at a similar piece, the Nautilus. This is much larger than the Hermit and will have a greater number of components. The wood I have used for the shell is Spalted Ash. The pencil demonstrates the scale of this piece. Next step will be forming the tentacles.

  7. Tri-pod

    Inspired by gothic architecture, the Tri-pod saw the first introduction of a wooden element, the combination of the warm wood within the cold steel was a welcome one. The stylized form can be maneuvered into a variety of poses allowing it to be suited to its setting.
