Much of Ashley Baldwin-Smith`s work is inspired by found objects and materials and hence very varied. His workshop is full of `stuff` everything from combine harvester parts to snooker balls. Before taking a degree in Art, Ashley worked for ten years as a skilled prototype engineer and uses many of those skills such as welding and fabricating to create his sculptures.
