This is the first of seven Ball Creature - Spherae sculptures.
They are all based on a 4"sphere so will sit in the palm of a hand.
They're tactile as well as visual. Six more on the Sculpture page.

I work as a freelance sculptor and designer, mostly for films and museums ( See Museum work, CV, and Film
work pages below ).  I'll be adding more information as time goes by, and trying to keep all the pages dynamic.
The central theme of this site is the anatomy and design of life in all it's forms, both on this planet now and in
the past and as it may exist elsewhere.  Also the realms of our Monsters and where I think they come from.

Life gives us consciousness, and the Universe becomes aware of itself.

" 339 pages full of suspense, managed to hook me for
three nights in a row; not only was the story tight,
not only was it well-paced, but, in the end, it
was believable as a possible past! "

This page is a Photo-Diary of six weeks on the Black Rock Desert, Nevada. The whole project was genuinely
extra-ordinary , and I'm still amazed at how lucky I was to be involved with it. Richard Noble, the team he put
together, the car itself and Andy Green driving it, all expressed the true and best meaning of 'Best of British'.
