‘Spring’, a new sculpture design for 2015

Spring is on the way, a time when thoughts start to turn towards enjoying and enhancing our gardens.  I’ve been busy throughout the winter, designing and making sculptures and planters ready for the new season.

My first two shows of 2015 are not far away now – I’m taking part again in the Easter Sculpture Exhibition at the University of Bristol Botanic Garden (3rd – 6th April).  As well as the outdoor sculptures in various media there will be a botanical art exhibition, demonstrations and garden tours.
