"HMCS POLYGON Big rudder, tiny propellor, small hull, bad combo. The strong harbour current pushed the “Poly” as she was affectionately known sideways into the far shore of Dartmouth where her rusting hull still sits today. A small, squat homage to bad design".
"Mad invention, re-invention, random chance, inspiration...objects tell stories. As a metal oddment artist, I have been visiting auction houses, yard sales, surplus dealers, finding and gathering urban flotsam for about fifteen years, slowly building up a large “palette” of industrial fittings and generally odd “high tech junk”. I look for circular shapes and highly crafted components and often the pieces I come across dictate the direction of the sculpture. I get to be an artist, antique dealer, and packrat all in the same occupation".
