In 2015, I was fortunate to be awarded ‘The Ingot Prize’ by London Bronze Casting. (They now run a ‘Bronze Fellowship Scheme’ instead.) The joint prize winners, myself and Harry Fletcher & Jim, had our winning sculptures cast in bronze, by the London Bronze Company (LBC). The sculptures were exhibited, in July 2016, at Bowman Sculpture, 6 Duke Street, St James, London.

The experimental focus of the sculpture making process, was to be able to make a body mould under tension. Usually they are made with the model in repose. I had to train in the gym to enable this. The idea was to represent an empowered, female form using gym rings, typically a male sports apparatus.
My heartfelt thanks go to all at London Bronze Company for casting a beautiful, striking bronze, and Bowman Sculpture for the wonderful opportunity and experience of exhibiting at this prestigious Mayfair, London, gallery.
