Giant Goldfish making a splash in my studio

Goldfish is a theme that has developed with the growth of my personal goldfishbowl, my own mental construct. The bigger your bowl the bigger your goldfish.

Miniature Life-size goldfish, 23kt gilded bronze mounted on crystal set with Red rubies.


We set our own limitations and have infinite growth potential…Goldfish Maquette 2 23kt gold on crystal has bubbles under his belly and his bowl is still growing…


This new splash is a big one…the logical growth..and the expanding mind..


Goldfish Maquette three in anticipation of liberation of the Goldfish…wax for bronze and note the concentric rings, he is becoming very much a part of the bigger pond.

 With infinite growth potential.

My Portfolio: I am a sculptor and artist. I studied Fine Art at Mandela Metropolitan University. I worked as a fettler and an artisan at a bronze foundry for a couple of years.
I was a teacher of sculpture at Somerset College for four and a half years and also lectured space and volume at Stellenbosch University for a short period. I did teach sculpture privately. I have a public studio/gallery in Stellenbosch South Africa. I do private and corporate commissions on sculptural portraiture, animal and bird sculptures. Sculptures are made in wax, plasticine or plaster before I have them cast in bronze.
I am currently represented by the George Thornton Art Gallery in the UK, Nottingham, where I have sculptures on Exhibition.
Locally in South Africa I have a few bronze sculptures at the Posthouse Gallery as well as an extensive collection of bronze sculptures at my Studio Gallery, 44 Church Street Stellenbosch South Africa.
I do illustrative pen and ink drawings and the occasional lithograph.
