Sculpture: Steel on Steel.
I have a love of birds and animals, I strive to give life and character to all my unique, figurative depictions, which are predominately made from re-used metal objects and new stainless steel.
The Farrier's Dog was inspired by my own dog. We used to keep horses so I had a large amount of used horseshoes to work with. The piece was an ongoing project over four months during which time it was cutback and rebuilt several times in different places to get the proportions and the dynamic of movement I wished to portray.
The piece has been coated in fine christaline wax to retard corrosion and hold the lovely patina you see now.
