We all have mobile phones these days, I found that mine was always getting mislaid so I made myself a dedicated phone holder. A simple variation on my Wallclimber sculptures. he is welded with brazed feet, and from seat to head is about nine inches tall. He has a small screw fitted so he cant be knocked over in a busy house/office, probably not necessary but there if needed. He can be configured to fit kindle and other Ereaders or even scaled up for Ipad's.

Priced at £60.00 for phones and kindles. As he is made to measure measure up your phone or Ereader when ordering.

Shadow Casters. A recent development, I have been watching crows lately and have become fascinated by their apparent lack of colour when in the air, almost an absence in space as they glide past. The Shadow Casters are hand cut from photographs using a plasma cutter to define the silhouette, then mounted in front of a wall so that they cast a shadow that changes as th sun passes overhead. Simple and striking. Interesting that the shadow is much more complete than the sculpture itself. I am happy to make other images in this style. I can see this being a developing area of my work. bird sculptures


Here is a recent photograph of a collection of Shadow Casters from Ian and Valerie Gilmer.
