Sculpture, Props And Models
Curiosity leads to creativity, and creativity takes many forms. The nature of my work means that my leisure time blurs into work and visa-versa. Here are some things that might interest you. Some of this is past work that I no longer do, such as sculpture, and some is related to my work as an artist in more peripheral ways, for example the models that I use as references for my aviation paintings.
Please note that all the replicas you see here are not for sale – they were unrepeatable one-offs. I will only rarely take commissions for anything else like you see here.
A copy I made of the terracotta bust of Sir Hans Sloane for the new British Library. Which is the original? You guess.
A copy of an ancient Greek head with the original.
A Tang dynasty ceramic horse
Treasure! Well, fake ‘bling’ if the truth be known. Here are some of the metal replicas that I have made.
A large stone horse with a replica of it made for a super-posh yacht
A bronze replica of a bust by Alfred Gilbert.
My copy of Vermeer’s painting ‘The Art of Painting’ with a replica I made of the stool seen in that painting made in Dutch walnut. One dream I have is to make a replica of this whole room; I already have most of the furniture for it and I even have a magnificent 17th brass candelabra like that too…so one day…
A replica of a medieval French ivory piece.
Another bust made for the new British Library building, this time of Sir Robert Cotton.
I have made three bronze sculptures that can be seen in London. On top of this stone arch is a large bronze that I made of the ‘West Indiaman’ ship The Hibberts, made for and on show in the Canary Wharf area of London.
A replica of a gilt-bronze Buddha.
I love early music and used to play and make various old instruments. I specialised in making replicas of old percussion instruments, for example these renaissance tabors.
I have replicated or faked up many documents for TV programmes where these need to be seen close up in either documentaries or dramas. Here are some medieval fakes.
More fake documents, photos, and newspapers etc. faked up for TV programmes, this time for a series on World War 1.
A faked-up replica of the catalogue of the first exhibition of the French Impressionists in 1874 done for a BBC documentary.
A 1/32 scale model of Bristol F.2b fighter.
A 1/32 scale model of a Boeing B-17G ‘Flying Fortress’.
A 1/32 scale model of an AH-54D Apache helicopter.
A 1/32 scale model of a Sukhoi Su-35 fighter jet.
