Mediums Used

assembling a giant ant

Alan is a self taught sculptor using a variety of metal fabrication techniques.

I work in a style of my own, in the `Direct metal Sculpture` tradition. This an approach to sculpture in which the material is allowed to speak for itself, the metal being treated as a natural material rather than being moulded and forged into shape as in the heavy metal approach typified by Blacksmithing.
A lot of my work is as much about the space occupied by the subject as it is about the subject itself, I try to frame the subject with metal and leave the viewer to fill in the gaps themselves.
