A new page has been added showing images of ‘Gull,’ which is shortly to be cast and placed in a beautiful setting in North Wales.

I cast this maquette and am very excited by the quality of finish and colour. The original form comes from another found object this time a piece of tree bark.

This is a maquette for a proposed monumental sculpture intended to commemorate all those who worked in the tough conditions of the North Wales mining industry.

It will be accompanied by an inscription which reads:

‘Roeddem yr llawer, roeddem yn un’ / ‘We were many, we were one’

With a model figure to show proposed scale of the final version.
