Another seaside themed piece, man looks out across the horizon. Standing next to his days catch, perhaps awaiting for other fishermen to return?

That hut must have taken some doing, looks good.

Cheers Dave, probably the most difficult piece I have made to date. I got the idea from abandoned sheep farmer dwellings you see scattered in the remotest parts of Snowdonia. I guess they were built as shelter to take a battering from the worst of the weather.
Yes, I think they are normally referred to as a 'Bothy'. You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Ddulyn Bothy a particular favourite residence of mine Dave. Nice cast iron log burner inside, fresh passing stream outside, a nice escape.

This is one of my earlier pieces, having mentioned primitive man and mans material obsessions above, this piece I feel has a nice connection with the Great Orme and prehistoric mining! What do you think?

Why is he vomiting on that rock? Looks like Fester after too many  Z**

I do feel that B2R has a point, I see myself in that piece, maybe that is art in itself?
Or maybe its just that I can relate to a bald, shapeless blob as I am one myself.

Craig, can you make your Plastocene men look more like people?   Maybe a nose or something, or am I missing the whole point?

Hi Fester, I don't think your missing the point at all! lol. The 'clay' men, I purposefully sculpt as minimalist as possible, and they are each for the viewer to interpret as their own. One thing that is confusing me though is the whole vomiting thing? then why is he holding a stone axe in his hand? So long as it's Stella you've not been drinking beforehand!  _))*

And here's Fester wishing he didn't drink so much the night before!

Its uncanny, my house looked just like that, for almost 12 months when I was having my extension built by cowboys!

Hi Snowcap,

I take some very unusual commissions from time to time, some serious... some less serious. Take this one pictured below for example.

It does look good, reminds me of a North Wales slate quarry with those pieces of slate nearby.

A nose isn't really essential to depict expression however.

This sad, lonely character illustrates an addict sitting on the waste ground alongside Llandudno railway station.

The cold, biting westerly winds are gusting down Builder St and "Bob" wishes he had purchased some clothing from the charity shop in Madoc St, rather than a six pack of cheap bitter from Asda.

Judging by the state of the pavement, he looks like is sitting on the corner of Mostyn St and St Georges Place.
