Industrial concrete tubes combined with painted PVC piping, plastic basins and concrete planters. An interesting project running 1 pump and feed 3 basins in a stepped format.

Designed and created to link larger terrace in the back of the house and new terrace overlooking the garden. Treated wood beams with hidden mid beam steel supports.

A large project – See the instructable build instructions >

This is an installation I did as counterbalance to my rock simulations. The contrast that is achieved using the same materiels within viewing distance of each other is something that is quite surprising and opens questions as to what is real and what is man made.

The main rock is about 1.2m tall and over 400kg in weight.

Recycled Scooter Project

A design and welding project using recycled bikes to create a new scooter / kickbike is well underway.

Version 1 . Just sourcing some final resourced parts to finish.

The idea of building concrete rocks came about because we needed some sculptural elements in the garden. So I started making the rocks with recycled materials as a base then reinforcing with wire and sculpting cement.

After that I discovered that potentially imitation stone paths would suit the the landscape and walkways so I developed a technique for making the paths and having them look like stone slabs.

They are actually very practical because the surface gives excellent adhesion for walking because of the  texture, veins and granule finish.

After repairing the garage wall I added this hillside landscape.
