THE BOTTOM OF MY GARDEN

So today, I was sitting in the garden enjoying a G&T when I heard a voice emanating from the public footpath the other side of the hedge – “Is that art?”

I began to feel a tad depressed.

And then I remembered that yesterday, when I was actually on the public footpath looking for feathers, [...]

DEATH ANNOUNCEMENT

It is with a heavy heart that I must announce the death
of the Fairlight Eye.

This iconic landmark, which has played such a significant role in making Fairlight, E.Sussex into the must-visit tourist destination status that it enjoys today, was destroyed by heavy winds last night.

In the meantime the key to my personal success will rely heavily on trying to expand my taste away from [...]

OPEN STUDIOS 2015

Later this year, September I believe, I’ll be throwing open my side passage so that peeps can gawp at my doings and wonder.

A typical conversation from the last time I participated in this annual vibrant Coastal Currents cultural event ran along these lines.

“Why do you bother?”

“Everest.”

“The double glazing company?”

Memorial for Frog

Frog is floating towards whatever counts as heaven in his world and serves as a reminder that dogs are, in the most part, good eggs.
Sculpture made for Tiggz in memory of his dog, Frog.
Any resemblance to Damien Hirst’s “ The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living” is purely coincidental. He should [...]

WHY ON EARTH DOES A DUCK NEED AN UMBRELLA?

Oh, now I understand … I think.
*scratches head and ponders*
Pondering is a GOOD thing BTW.
