  •  I have based my small scale foundry on a combination of ancient and contemporary methods. This allows me not only to cast my own work but also pack the foundry in the car and set up casting outside the studio. I use clay and horsedung moulds for my work.  This method is known as the lost wax method and this process is also in use in commercial foundries but with contemporary materials. Using this method allows me to cast all my own work. Though my personal work is usually on a smaller scale, I have had the opportunity to work with other makers on much larger scales and in other materials than bronze. This has instigated an investigation into more design led pieces such as light pieces and art jewellery.

  •  Bronze Casting - mit hjertes barn

    I am biased when it comes to casting - I know nothing more exciting. It never gets boring. I use a combination of ancient and contemporary methods, which despite my years of experience still holds this element of unpredictability. I find that so intriguing. I am never a 100% sure what the end result will be. From modelling the piece in wax, investing it in a clay/horse dung mould, burn it out in kiln or fire pit to finally cast it using bellows and charcoal or a gas fired furnace, the end result is always as exciting as the first time!
