Award winning metal sculptor, has been creating contemporary works of art for the last decade. The mediums in which he works are metal, wood and stone.
Using a combination of traditional blacksmithing and modern industrial techniques, working hot heavy gauge material that can be forged. Ian creates a conceptual reality in steel.
Ian's inspiration comes from natural organic forms combined with an industrial twist as with the likes Richard Aerra and Antony Gormley whose work is in gargantuan proportion in such heavy gage material and yet so soft in form.
"I like my work to create its own presence with an almost minimalist approach, therefore leaving the rest to those who are viewing my work."
He has earned himself certificates of merit from the Worshipful Company of Blacksmiths. He feels that in gaining a full understanding of hot metal, and of traditional blacksmithing techniques, it has enabled him to create the work he produces today.
Ian has now finished working on a selection of sculptures commissioned for Dorchester Hotels new project in Berkshire.
His work can also be viewed at this year's "Chelsea Flower Show" & "Animal Art Fair on the South Bank" as well as other exhibitions throughout the UK.
