Brick City Bar (2019)

Oh wow it’s been a while since I’ve posted here so here’s an update from a couple of months ago! I got to make a bar with a couple of friends and it was a project that’ll be talked about for many years. Especially since none of us had done anything like it before. My main task was to somehow manufacture the curved bit and it was based on YouTube instructional videos, trial and error and a million different angles on the mitre saw haha

Bud Vases and Soap Dishes

Another project involving bud vases but this time it’s objects made for a gift shop. I’m still wondering whether using hardwoods would give the dishes more longevity but we’ll get back to that at a later stage. Funny where designing and making things takes you!

Wiggle Butt No. 3 (2018)

Well it’s been interesting transferring drawings to readymade objects to say the least. But so far so good with the exception of a few accidents which kept delaying the project. There is nothing like nearing completion only to see it fall apart in your hands ha ha

This sculpture was made for the ‘Woof Woof’ exhibit at Gallery Yampu, Port Adelaide for the annual SALA festival. Opens August 9th and I hope to see you there!

Brick City Bar Mural (Part 2)


Or more accurately a series of murals done throughout the building over the course of a months or so. Cutting the stencils actually took longer than to paint but that’s part of the process. Now I’ve got a series of motifs to use indefinitely or at least until the material breaks down.


The beauty of using metallic paints is that some murals are only really visible at certain angles or times of day. It requires repeat views, making it a process of gradual discovery.
