Occasionally, some pieces represent more than just the immediate subject matter I am trying to portray. The Raven I’ve recently completed has just joined the collection at the Workshop Wales Gallery.
Out of the many steel objects that make up the sculpture, it would be hard to find one that hadn’t come from my good friend Collin Hill from Tools for Self Reliance.
From time to time when I am able to, I help the voluntary group who collect and recondition unwanted tools & sewing machines, which go to Tools for Self Reliance projects in Africa & community groups here in Wales.
Collin [being someone who is of a good green nature!] was happy to find that the tools that couldn’t be fixed for practical use, could find a new place in art.
