I am inspired by things I see in nature, a passing comment or a line in a poem. Then I make a rough sketch. Welding is my favourite part as I see the work gradually take shape. But the best bit is standing back and comparing my finished work with the rough sketch from which it has emerged .
I am fascinated by the beauty, and indeed the art, that can be found in finely engineered gears, bearings etc that make up engines. In todays throw away society I try to use 90% of my materials from scrap so that they have a very low carbon footprint.
My work can be seen at The Timothy Hawkins Gallery in Church Street, Hereford and also at my studio – see my website for further details.
