I first became interested in bells at the end of the Foot and Mouth epidemic in my Parish in 2001, when the movement restrictions were lifted and we could leave our farms for the first time in six months. I was amazed to discover these enormous bronze sculptures secreted away in my small rural parish. Many of my bell sculptures have engaged with their environment by physically responding to it; either by being slowly eroded by a stream, sounding on the high tide, or marking the Polar Star.
