Construction & technical Process
The sculptures are made from copper with brass, steel, aluminium and bronze details; all of which are obtained through recycling services, scrap metal merchants and donation.
Glaze textures are reached through reactive mixtures. All pieces are hand painted using a variety of different paints, inks and finishes.
Green and blue patinas are achieved using ammonia and salt vapour baths.
All welding performed with a non-gas MIG.
The ‘base stones’ are Yorkshire sandstone sourced locally in North Yorkshire and the slate is from Honister slate mine in the Lake District.
