An ongoing project with the Learning Volunteer Programme at the Natural History Museum, London to produce a series of tactile models of insects, initially focussing on beetles. The panels are A5 in size and cast in bronze finish resin to make them durable, light and easily handled by both the learning volunteers and sighted and unsighted visitors.
A commission for the Natural History Museum, London, this piece is a tactile interpretation of William Smith's Ammonites. Displayed in the Treasures Cadogan gallery, the piece represents the original Ammonites at close to actual size, cast in a stone finish resin.
A private commission, this piece is cast in resin with a bronze finish.
A private commission for the Goring Hotel, this is scale model of the sculpture of Otto Goring, the hotel's founder, that can be seen in the hotel's main foyer. One of a series cast in resin with a bronze finish, the models were originally used as statuettes for an internal staff awards ceremony.
In partnership with the RNIB and working closely with the design team at Event, the Roman Baths project was a series of panels and models interpreting two temple buildings and two stone carvings on display in the museum. It was installed in Spring 2011 as part of a major accessibility refurbishment of the Museum.
Each piece is cast in resin with a stone finish to combine the characteristics of fine detail with durability. There are bronze resin figures positioned next to pillars on the building models to give a scale reference.
This sculpture is a carved block of Frosterley Limestone inset with cast bronze interpretations of the fossils found within it. The fossil installation is displayed on an oak plinth among the Frosterley floor tiles and oak doors and display cabinets in the Marble Hall of the Laing Art Gallery.
Prominent ‘Please Touch’ and information labels in text and Braille are attached to the plinth.
The sculpture is finished on one side to reflect the smoothness of the floor tiles and the central section shows and explains the unusual shapes seen in the tiles with carved and truncated fossils. The third section is a
representation of a carboniferous sea floor with ‘living’ dibunophyllum bipartitum cast in bronze. The Department of Coelenterates at the Natural History Museum in London offered invaluable advice in establishing the most accurate representation of ‘dibunophyllum’.
The tactile bench is made from seasoned European oak, and constructed with a three metre long oval ended bench platform, intersected by a central pyramid shaped backrest. There are three carved relief panels on each face of the backrest. The relief carvings are details selected from six paintings on permanent display in the Laing Art Gallery's 18th and 19th Century Gallery.
A robust black resin cast taken from a marble bust of the Laing Art Gallery’s founder Alexander Laing. It is displayed on the ground floor of the gallery at a height easily reached by wheelchair users and children.
