This forged steel sculpture of an apple with 1/3 missing was created to highlight the need to end world hunger. Around 1/3 of the world’s population goes to bed hungry everyday, while around 1/3 of the western world’s food is wasted daily.

This build was filmed for BBC1’s ‘Getting the builders in’. I designed and created a solution to a wasted storage problem by creating two bespoke shelving and cabinet units for the alcoves in this lounge. I used reclaimed materials which I sourced at Brighton Wood store. The client wanted the walls soundproofed – I used cork to do this and covered it in pallet cladding which I painted to match the theme in the house. The shelves then fixed to the walls either side of the cladding with angle iron so it did not interfere with the cladding on the rear wall. The shelf brackets match the cabinets with their angle iron edges. Reclaimed scaffold boards, pallet wood and angle iron were used to create this stylish alcove storage solution click here to enquire about your own commission.
I forged these hinges from mild steel by heating the metal with Oxy-propane gas and manipulating the metal to form the shaped I needed, and then removing some of the stock so the two parts could hinge together. This was part of a college project which investigated the theme ‘subversion’. I chose to subvert patriarchal religion and society.
