Metal

It is a skill to find the softness in such a rigid material.

My inspiration is drawn from everyday objects and I have worked over the years to turn everyday objects into beautiful pieces of art.

While still at high school I got into making things from dads scrap bins and called myself RawIron.

Dad taught me the basics of welding at the age of 10 and from there on I have experimented and allowed my knowledge to grow through hands on experience.

This gallery shows works from 2004-2020.

Darcy the ranch Giraffe allthingswhiting

Darcy the ranch Giraffe allthingswhiting

After moving into Melbourne and re-igniting my artistic side I needed a challenge… …A large challenge. A fond memory of a two-meter paper mache giraffe made by my late grandfather Darcy was my inspiration. My sculpture ‘Darcy’ is a tribute to a great man and a happy time in my life.

Steel stilettos, allthingswhiting

Steel stilettos, allthingswhiting

Playing with steel I could never wear nice things, I tried for a while but stilettos and lingerie always ended up in recycle bins. Jumping over barrels and bending up bars these clothing pieces would only leave scars. Finally I came up with a plan to make it out of metal, hard as nails but looks as soft as a petal.
