A limestone foot and a clay bust of Mr Kruschev are the most significant sculptural works to endure from my early years though a level of 3D construction ( or reduction!) has always run parallel to my painting. Lately in fact there's been some satisfying symbiosis where a theme which originated in a painting is further explored in a sculpture - and vice versa.

'The Aqua Enigma' was carved from a totara fencepost for a recent exhibition but the dominating sculptural medium by far during the past decade has been bronze.
My bronzes are cast using the lost wax method, often at an annual retreat in the Wairarapa. There for ten days we are based at a disused shearing shed, camping nearby and partaking in the increasingly dramatic processes!
