My passion is to source and join unrelated objects in a manner that appears perfectly plausible.

I like to create new forms that look like they existed in a fictitious reality from either past or present, both living or dead.

This is achieved through exploring materials both natural and man made, then matching their apparent weathered condition and their ability to connect.

I perceive the found objects I use as very special. They still have great form, patina, life and energy.

Inherent connections can also be made between unrelated shapes I use. References to ‘form follows function’ are sometimes observed.
