“Forever Rose”
Here is something I am very proud to have been asked to make. My long time friend, Craig, wanted something very special to gift to his wife Kathryn on the occasion of her birthday. He had conceived the idea of a standard rose sculpture, in steel, to place in a future standard rose garden. He entrusted me with the execution and design, with some inclusions, mainly, eight significant dates to be included in the design. Never having made something this complex in steel before, I was glad he gave me plenty of lead time!
So here we have the finished product, a standard rose bush of eight blooms, standing two metres tall, mounted on a base plate. It’s constructed to allow the height to be varied as required to fit the rose garden, when it is completed. There are one hundred and ninety eight components, mostly rescued steel, with some recycled copper wire and some new steel. I’ve put a few pics in the comments to show how the roses were formed. Cutting all the intricate pieces out of steel by hand has given me a grip….of iron!
I was so happy with how it all came together, that I gave a little dance (and I DON’T DANCE!)
Craig has gifted the rose bush to Kathryn, and she’s very happy with Craig’s thoughtfulness and love, not to mention the sculpture itself.

This little fellow is heard about Tik Tok and wanted to make his own dance video. He loves his down time and has the guts to show it!
This was fun to make, and I hope he makes you smile.

“Surface Tension”

Opal, Vintage gold wristwatch case, Silver

25mm x 16mm x 35mm approximately

Created to celebrate the occasion of my sister, Jenny turning sixty, I wanted to make her a piece of jewellery with a story. Surface tension occurs on a fluid, and allows it to hold up light objects. Jenny has settled in Mallacoota and has weathered many highs and lows. Her heart is uplifted by the support and love of those in her seaside community, and she offers the same in return. I have cut and polished three varieties of opal to make this piece. The first is the coloured opal heart which “floats” on a sea of honey opal, which, in turn sits on a base of opal matrix. The whole is mounted in a vintage gold plated ladies' wristwatch case, repurposed to make it a pendant and a bezel of silver forged to frame the picture. The idea is that Jenny’s love of her community allows her to float on the surface of the warm shallow waters of Mallacoota and live her life to the fullest. Here’s to the next sixty years!

“Window to My Heart”
Opal and vintage gold wrist watch case
25mm x 30mm
I cut and polished this Opal heart today from rough, then modified an antique gold plated wristwatch case to present it. The Opal flashes an amazing electric blue. I cut the strap brackets from the case and used them to make the bail and added a new old stock glass to complete the piece. Opal is notoriously hard to photograph in a manner to give a true indication of the color and light play, so you get a video instead!

“Wave Mechanics”
Vintage pocket watch and wristwatch parts
40mm x 55mm approximately

I imagined a robot surfing a mechanical wave and this is the result. The robot, made from a pocket watch frame post, a screw, two wristwatch hands for arms and two click springs for legs, rides his brass surfboard on a wave made from a pocket watch bridge plate. The montage is framed within a vintage pocket watch case, the background being tinted with alcohol ink for contrast.

I’m thrilled to announce that LouiCarlisle Artle Art has offered me the opportunity to display and sell my creations at her wonderful store in Benalla, Victoria! After many delays due to COVID, we were finally able to set up the displays. A variety of pieces, both jewellery and sculpture are available, in good time for Christmas shopping. Louise has a wonderful range of art supplies, does internet sales and couldn’t be more helpful if you have a query or need her to track down any arty needs.
Benalla has a growing reputation as an arts area, with many murals in town, a great gallery, good food and accomodation available.
What are you waiting for? Get up there and buy my stuff (oh, and Louise’s too!😁)
