I love sculpting. It’s like doing a dance, round round, up and down. Even when making a small sculpture there’s no need to be static.

Making a piece of work is a journey, both inward and outward, with luck you discover more and more as you go. Sculptural forms can utilise any material that you like, the durable, the fragile, the ephemeral and, I would say especially, found objects. The material, and form that you choose, figurative, abstract or whatever, becomes the language you use to express some essence, vision or idea. Whatever the language it will carry the flavour of the individual through whom the piece came, willy-nilly. Just like the words in a stick of rock. Your stamp is on whatever you do.  But whatever you do, especially if you’re making some sort of art, keep going, don’t stop here.
