Recycling scrap metal with imagination and a MIG welder, Gavin Darby of Frailloop creates metal sculpture designed mainly for the garden and other outside locations. Garden gates, business signs, office focal points and of course the unique garden animals and flowers have all come out of the Nottinghamshire based Frailloop workshop.
This week I picked up the keys for the new studio and then spent the rest of the week cleaning, building, painting and fixing. Too cold to paint some days - the can says don't use if the temperature is below 5C. Given the water outside froze before it hit the drain it was colder. Got to be finished by the end of next week so I can begin to move in and sculpt again.
