I have been carving Portland stone ever since I first found a discarded piece in a skip outside the Royal College of Art where I was a student. Much of London is built in Portland stone, from St Pauls Cathedral, The British Museum and of course including, Christ Church here in Spitalfields.
This piece I used for this carving was salvaged from a London building site overlooking the Thames and I decided to incorporate the beautiful fragments of ceramic pottery I found on one of my many walks along the river at low tide. Ever since I moved to London from a small mining town in Lancashire to study art at the RCA in 1981, I have been fascinated with London, the river and the amazing history of what is, in my humble opinion, the best city in the world.
