The mermaid has been donated to Marlens, the charity behind the restoration, management and further improvement of Clevedon Marine Lake.  She is also taking part in the ‘Light up The Lake’ celebrations when Marlens and The Pier host a thank you event to shine a light on the invaluable support the Heritage Lottery Fund has given to developing and improving two of Clevedon’s historic seafront attractions.  

Clevedon is just south of Bristol, and for those of you living nearby who would like to get involved in improving the seafront, contact info@marlens.org.uk

A glimpse of some of my sculptures

If you have the patience to scroll down the page, you’ll find various examples of my sculptures which give an overview of the sort of work I am currently producing.  Wherever possible, I prefer to work with recycled materials.  All the outdoor sculptures are coated with my own weather-proofing formula.

Here are some I made earlier!

Globe
Globe is 2 m diameter made with 6mm rod and covered in copper taken from old water tanks. It is on a private estate on Dartmoor.
