nice day for a drive

Took a look on ebay last night, just on the off chance, and found this lot of scaffold with 10 minutes to go. 9 minutes later put in a snipe bid. On the way to studio this morning took a (hands free) call about collection. 280 miles later arrived at studio with 250 foot of rusty scaffold. It'll make some great ants legs.

Yesterday was good...

...but today is better! I've just landed a large commission - lots of work for Obediar (another skilled sculptor) and I. Watch this space for pictures. Hopefully in about a week...


Open Lady Bay festival was wonderful. Loads of customers. More nice comments about my work. Best bit - lots of friends visiting.
Another day that reminds my why I'm so lucky to be able to do this 'job'.

Open Lady Bay Arts Festival

This weekend I will be taking part in this festival - 1 til 6 Saturday and Sunday. Come and see me, the glass and metal dragon, various other pieces of steel sculpture and lots of other artists and artwork.
For those that don't know Lady Bay is a nice bit of Nottingham, between West Bridgford and the Trent. 
Looks like it'll be sunny too.

Lady Bay Festival interview on Radio Nottingham

This afternoon I was interviewed by Jo Davies on Radio Nottingham. OK - not just me, but help my ego. For the next few days I think you can hear me on listen again at . I think I appear about 3.20pm (not that you should not listen to the rest of Jo's program). The photo (which I hope is attached) was taken by Dan Sinclair. Jo is hidden behind the dragons head. 
It was good to help publicise the Lady Bay Festival and let the dragon (even if was only just the head) out to see the world for the first time.
The stag party I passed heading in to the Jury's Inn Hotel may well find that it wasn't the only one out in Nottingham tonight...
