Some of his sculptures are for public places but most are of a size that can be placed in a garden setting. He has several sculptures on exhibition and on loan in public places for which he is looking for permanent h...

Sculpture description:
This is a unique sculpture depicting a vulture carrying a carcass on its back. The carcass is neither a dog nor a deer - it is a cloned creature. The sculpture is a statement about man`s interference with Nature and how things can go wrong. The vulture cleans up the mistakes.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."
