Carved poplar wood fish, copper pipe, oak base. L60cm. ©JMA2016
Built out of scrap fencing and plywood. So far it has only housed a wasps nest; I haven’t plucked up the courage to actually get some water fowl.
690mm tall, these finials were inspired by my love of victorian railway architecture and made for our barn. I hadn’t used the lathe for a long time so it was quite a challenge to end up with two identical forms. They were turned from lime wood, primed, painted with Jonathan Avery Sabbathday Blue and stuck on with silicon – no mechanical fixings! Why do it? Well they emphasise the structure almost like punctuation!
Built with treated softwood. Decorative lead work to protect top edge. 2008
