So I’ve been using another blog for my own work, but I don’t think that site has been maintained by its developers since 2013 at least?? Not sure what was happening there, but it was unstable at best and at times I couldn’t log in at all which is a bit of a problem when you’re the admin ha ha. Anyway, I’ve shared bits and pieces of it on this blog but now it’s been fully integrated into another WordPress site so we’ll see how the juggling act evolves during the year.


This blog is basically the research and inspiration board for my work under the Remake/Remodel moniker, the name borrowed from a Roxy Music song but signifying using any materials around you as springboards for creative work. I just find that working with what you have available in your own environment is a more realistic way to get inspired and a truer reflection of who you really are.

Another update on some of my own work from the last few months, I have been working with found hubcaps, lamp stands and old cassette tapes no one plays anymore (a few have melted in my car during past heat waves ha ha). There’s an unknown quantity to these objects which makes it simultaneously frustrating and exciting at the same time. I’m never quite sure how they’ll turn out due in part to the fact that they’re constructed out of some very different materials but it’s great to see them come to life as ‘totems’, ‘idols’ or ‘masks’ or whatever one wants them to be really.

I don’t often post my own work here because it would just be too much for one blog I think. So there is a separate facebook page and blog for that if anyone is interested:

As Remake/Remodel I make furniture, sculptures, paintings pretty much anything I can think of from recycled materials. Some work samples:

Dinner/Office Table (2013) Chopping Boards Set 2 (2013)


Here are a couple of links for an article on Remake/Remodel, an upcycled arts/ crafts/ furniture and homewares shop I’ve been running for almost a year now. Thanks to Grant Mills for the interview and pix 🙂
