This is Howard the Dragon
Howard was commissioned in 2014 the customer specifically said it needed to look at home in its surrounding and wanted to be it had to be something nobody else had. The setting that Howard lives in is a beautiful private Japanese garden. After the preliminary drawings And prototypes Howard was born. With a
head a total of 1.2m long and 1m wide, Striking colour and
flickering Tonge, With aggressive pointed horns and terrifying
teeth he was very successful in scaring the owners dogs!
This is Molly the Shoeland Pony
Molly was commissioned in 2015
She is modelled on a Shetland pony on the isle of white.
Featuring in the happy pony story’s by Gail yardley.
Every shoe that made molly was forged to shape
and every nail to make the mane was hand
forged. Finished in a clear lacquer to keep
the natural effect of the shoes. Molly
lives very happily with her real twin!
This is a balcony that had to
fitted to a house in Dorset.
The challenge was that it couldn’t
be fixed to the walking surface as the
customers didn’t want to compromise
the water proof integrity of the fiber glass.
So I made brackets that could be fixed to
the sides of the building it self. To support
the structure the whole way round.
The design proses was very easy to get
ideas from the customers made the
designing a great pleasure.
And constructing the project
was fantastic fun!
Glass top dining table set
This one is a bit of a quirky. The
customers in this case had some very
very old slaughterhouse grates from a
building they converted. And didn’t
know what to do with them. They
wanted to make them a feature of the
house, so I suggested make a bench
using these panels. Ideas came and
went until the customers settled on a
dining set for their patio. The style had
to be traditional and practical (comfy)
this design I did had both aspects and
was agreed it would be the best thing to
do. This dining set was a very
interesting and challenging project.
