Red Mantra (1996)
145cm high x 189cm wide x 18cm deep.

Fabricated steel, painted

'Red Mantra' was the first of the steel garden series in which I discovered that by continuing to build up the strips of steel I could achieve new facettes, and the piece began to look like a giant abstract waffle iron.

Pink (1997)
75 x 55 x 8cm

Fabricated steel, painted

Yellow (1996)
195 x 150 x 12cm

Fabricated steel, painted

Yellow Crack (1995)
110cm high x 375cm wide x 18cm deep.

Fabricated steel, painted

My steel wall sculptures were always carefully worked out on paper. I needed to take accurate measurements of the angles to be able to cut precise pieces on the cutting machine.

Sundrop (1997 - 2017)

Wall Fish (1997)
130cm high x 45cm wide x 30cm deep.

Fabricated steel, gilded This piece had a previous incarnation - it used to be a blue mountain. I needed space on the floor, so I welded on a couple of lugs and stuck it on the wall. Now it is white gold and much happier.

Wallmountain was shown at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2012 - standing on the floor.

Phoenix (1998)
Height 5.5m, Length 8.5m,

Fabricated stainless steel base; gilded inside; stainless steel mesh sewn on to stainless steel ropes which are anchored by a spring to a tree

The base of this piece takes its shape from the constellation of Phoenix.

Yellow Tree (2005)
190 x 100 x 110cm

Fabricated steel, painted

In the Beginning (2002)
Diameter 140cm.

Stainless-steel rods, silver-soldered

Dandelions, alliums - I love these explosive flowers and seed-heads. I spent months and months making over a hundred individual stalks for just one sculpture, each with 6 or 7 shorter stalks, each of which carried 10 or 11 even shorter stems, so that I ended up cutting, grinding and assembling around 10,000 little steel stalks of the smallest size. When it was done it shimmered! It stayed in Goodwood (Cass Sculpture Foundatiion) until it was sold.

Trefoil (2014)
260cm high x 150cm wide x 45cm deep.

Fabricated steel, rust-proofed, painted

One of those beautifully simple ideas: three steel square hollow bars coming together, but then it gets really complicated.

Cosmic Event (1993)
110cm high x 290cm wide x 15cm deep.

Fabricated steel, painted Cosmic Event has been restored to its original colour. The blue and red was an attempt to please people but it took the real meaning and therefore the power away. It is not an easy sculpture because it came out of the dynamics of a moment of full conciousness. I experienced such a moment and in this sculpture I am bringing spirit and matter together in a sort of stereo vision.

Dolcezza Mia (2007)
130cm high x 50cm wide x 50cm deep.

Fabricated steel, rust-proofed, painted Dolcezza Mia, got its name from a big, round, sticky red lollipop that had the title written across it. Julia Vance gave it to me as a farewell present (she is good like that) on the last day of a working stint in Italy. I made the steel sculpture shortly after that. Photograph by Clive Nicols.

More Than Enough (2017)
95 cm diameter x 12 cm depth

Fabricated steel with Fluorescent Paint on the Reverse

Cut Me Some Slack (2011)
Diameter 110cm; 19cm deep.

Welded steel, painted

I gilded the distorted section with palladium leaf. When I made the sculpture and ground the welds flush, the steel looked gleaming and polished and I decided to recreate that appearance by gilding it.

Infinity Box (1992)
43 cm height x 112 cm width x 4 cm depth

Fabricated steel with Micaceous Paint

From my Geometry series: Objects in Space.

Green Wedge Maquette (2017)
70 cm high

Fabricated steel

For Scaling upto a height of 3.5m.

Box for Green Birdthoughts (2015)
65cm high x 34cm wide x 22cm deep.

Green is the colour of hope - I am told. This box is full of hope, so much so that it is dragged off the wall under the weight of this hope.

From Dusk Till Dawn (2011)
100cm high x 160cm wide x 18cm deep.

Welded steel, painted

The 'width' of this piece is flexible as there is a certain amount of play in the relationship between the two rings. This sculpture has an industrial kind of romance at its heart.

Full Disclosure (2014)
130cm high x 75cm wide x 35cm deep.

Prizewinner at the London Group Open 2015. I construct containers from angle iron that look like they've been kicked.

Minimal Sunset (2014)
38cm high x 38cm wide x 39cm deep.

A suggested internal heat melts the frame. A container that cannot contain.

For No Apparent Reason (2014)
15cm high x 122cm wide x 8cm deep.

The clue is in the title: you are looking at a straight piece of angle steel and suddenly there is a disturbance. A moment of change - then it continues as it was.

Nostalgia Slipping (2014)
27cm high x 170cm wide x 6cm deep.

Welded steel, painted

I love the very feminine satin pink hanging under the strong matt anthracite grey.

Horizon Splitting
300cm x 45cm x 6cm

Imagine: glittering moonlight on water. Romantic picture made from industrial steel section.

Over The Top (2011)
60cm high x 40cm deep.

Welded steel, painted

I made this maquette after I made the big 'Yellow Tree'. A balancing act. The more I tilted the straight angle section the more I had to add to the streaming ribbons.

I made this sculpture to highlight the impossibility of capturing the awesome beauty of a sunset in a sculpture...

Tear To Open (2013)
100cm high x 86cm wide x 10cm deep.

It's so simple - the act of opening something, yet in practice it can be extraordinarily difficult. Tear to Open hovers over the wall - it invites interpretations on different levels. It was exhibited at the RA Summer Show in 2014.

Blaue Mitte (2013)
112cm high x 109cm wide x 25cm deep.

Welded steel, painted

Prizewinner from the National Open Art Exhibition. There is a hint of orange reflecting off the wall. I am attached to this piece - could be because I know the amount of work that went into the making. But also when I make a piece that has a good balance of strength and vulnerability for me, then I like to keep it for a while.

Day Two (2015)
110cm high x 110cm wide x 15cm deep.

Fabricated steel

The steel rings are left raw and unpainted. The looped section has a glow of red behind it. The piece looks quite biblical to me, sort of 'Day Two' of the creation of the earth in the book of genesis. Strong stuff that steel.

Flying Colours (2008)
500cm high x 200cm wide x 450cm deep.

Welded steel, painted

Suspended sculpture commissioned by Leicester University for their new library. Part of creating something new is to throw away old ideas especially the ones we are most attached to because those tend to stop us from experimenting freely. This scupture makes the point by suggesting crumpled sheets of paper tossed into the air. The imagination does the rest.

The piece is made in five independent sections from different types of steel.

Soft Tower (2007)
290cm high x 65cm wide x 65cm deep.

Fabricated steel, painted

Commissioned for Chiswick Park, the Richard Rogers development in Chiswick. I sometimes look around me and wonder by what strange coincidence I ended up being me and not the person I am next to. The steel towers and columns are tardises that suggest the infinite possibilities.

Moon Struck (2006)
250 x 90 x 80cm

Fabricated steel, painted

A family of five stalks gathered to look upwards at the moon - perhaps.
