3D works

I enjoy making 3D pieces; using what ever I see around that inspires me.

some of these

were made from

old kitchen drawers

some from old timbers

worn into great textures

Some were made from clay, papier mache or some combination of all that was available

                                                                           Most are a statement on social history and attitudes;

                                                                                                                                    some drawing on historical events;

                                                                                                                                                                                 some just because I saw some image that intrigued me.

Then I realised 'Caged Birds' were rather sad

In Morocco women were somewhat 'hidden', maybe caged?

Old buildings

were often 'decorated'

with beautiful

arabic script.

I was amused

to discover this

was advertising

COCA COLA
