After a friend gave me 80 rolls of yellow and black stickytape a few years ago, I realised I could make sculptures out of just about anything. I'd already been experimenting with woven wire, and suddenly every bit of junk I saw seemed to be brimming with potential. It feels so right, too, re-using or re-purposing materials. Although I've moved towards more durable materials than sticky-tape now, I no longer feel the need to make absolutely permanent objects like bronzes which will most likely outlast the human race. My current favourite materials are plumbing pipes and fittings, and wire mesh.
