Nature and natural forms inspire Ian’s work and this gives his sculptures their universal appeal.
In nature, surface can be an important part of the form, helping to define its purpose, and his sculptures reflect this, from the very fine texture he adds to the stainless steel to the more rugged finish he applies to his bronze works.
Ian exhibits widely and is regularly commissioned by corporate and public bodies as well as many private clients.
"The ram's horn is a form that has always appealed to me, a universal shape that appears throughout nature and, as with a lot of natural forms, it is aesthetically pleasing. I’ve used in various sculptures including the bronze Ammonite, and stainless steel Nautilus."
