Everything around us is an element, and as time goes by all elements change.
This sculpture has encountered many transformations.
From a sampling of a tree to a salvaged resource.
A millennia ago all of the inlayed stones were just molten liquids.
All of these elements are now together to represent my interpretation of metamorphic change.
I have been working as an artist for more than 40 years. Creating works for private clients across Australia and overseas, mainly with timber and gemstones.
30 years ago I set up a private studio local to the Sunshine Coast to help me focus on my lifelong passion for making furniture and sculptures. Mixing mediums to create unique pieces is not just what I do, but represents who I am.
This piece I am displaying at SOTE will be one of my few pieces that will be suitable for outdoor display.

Description of Work in Progress
A freeform sculpture crafted from a local Red Cedar root system I salvaged from a Maleny paddock many years ago. It’s a local piece of history capturing the region’s timber-cutting years.
The exterior will be coated in a new weather proof product called liquid metal smoked chrome. I am in the middle of the process at present.
