If you want to see the creative side of art, then this is the place to be. Michael's rammed workshop is an aladdin's cave of tools and part finished works of art that show his creative process. The crow is a bonus .

An absolute delight to visit Michael and his unexpected apprentice today in their quirky studio. A pleasure to see such talent at work and to gain insight into the creative process, thank you for taking the time to talk to us. How lovely that we then spotted one of your bats on the swing bridge on our walk home! A highlight of our day. Wishing you all the best.

Brilliant sculptures, hopefully one day I will be able to afford one of them! Absolutely loved the birds and the bats; would love a bat on the front of my house.

Had a look in at the metal sculpture's which are very nice, after first thinking the door was locked. (twist the large nut used as a door handle) Stayed a little while but owner didn't seem interested in talking to potential customers ? sad really. Joe Crow the resident corvid was making an attempt to make us welcome but I had trouble translating crow speak. :-) We left non the wiser. (Good luck building the wall in the barn)

Sorry I couldn’t give you my full attention I’ve rather a full plate at the moment. I’m self-building my new workshop/home in the mornings and the rest of the day/eve currently preparing work for exhibiting at RHS Rosemoor in their Winter Sculpture Exhibition 2020. Though I try to engage with interested parties when I can, I also have customer orders, galleries to resupply and new works to develop and am not always wired well enough to jump from calculation to conversation (especially when deadlines are looming). I have a regular stream of visitors and over the last twenty years of business I’ve found it better to allow people uninterrupted browsing and the space to enquire. As metalworking processes tend to destroy clothing and spread grime, I’ve often thought it better to not unsettle visitors with a direct approach. Jo is the ‘front-man’ and usually attracts the initial enquiries to which I respond, I also leave him in charge when I’m busy. Hopefully on your next visit life will be a little less fraught for me and I can explain more then translate some of Jo’s sales pitch.
