Durham Miner Mark 2

Commissioned by The Woodland Trust, in partnership with Ruth Thompson we remade the Durham Miner. For greater strength and durability we used a metal frame, I wove the head and hands with wire, and we used oak strips for his clothing. He has proved very popular for photo opportunities and is a mascot to a local running club.

Finished at last!

Due for delivery on 4th January.

Will let you know when the exhibition starts.

Sculptures made with pupils in Key Stages 1 & 2 in partnership with Ruth Thompson.

I am very excited to be one of four artists commissioned for Durham Cathedral's Open Treasure Project, Recreating The Community. I am to produce a piece inspired by the 'Cuthbert Silks' and the coffin of St Cuthbert. This is to be a felt cloak.  I shall be updating you on it's progress.

So how has my commission been developing?
