WILD THINGS

In 2024 I created a series of three small wildlife sculptures for an exhibition featuring the artists and makers resident at the Harley Foundation Studios.  Entitled 'Work Life: Life's work',  the exhibition in the main space at the Harley Gallery was intended to give an insight into our work and also into us as individuals and why we work in the way we do.


I collected various discarded objects and materials from the other studios and used them to create some of the creatures that inhabit the spaces alongside us.


Materials include: knitted fabric, cheese grater and other kitchenalia, wood offcuts, scrap fabric, springs, bits of wooden furniture, jewellery test pieces, ball bearings, piano wires, a porridge pot and electrical connectors.
