chasing

Chasing allows me to draw on metal, but the advantage is that the final metal picture can be anything from a flat canvas right up to full life-like relief. 

To see more examples of my chased metalwork, please click hereNew work is always underway, please check back often.

Please contact me to enquire about developing your story into a highly detailed work of metal art.



Work in progress: Run, made by chasing and repoussé. Portrait study made from flat brass sheet metal, only 0.8mm thick.

Chasing’ is the use of tools to create lines or texture marks on the surface of metal, it can be just like drawing. But the artwork can also be made into a three dimensional form by hitting and stretching the metal surface from behind—‘repoussé’—to sculpt relief, or volume, into the metal surface.

Work in progress  - repousséd and chased bonze flowers.
I am currently making 600 bronze flowers for a contemporary Chinese tea-room, designed by Cory Barkman. You can see more on Cory's Facebook page, and in my blog posts.

My 17-piece installation of chased and repousséd horse studies, In Dreams, was on display in the Alberta Craft Council "Well In Hand" exhibition in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The on-line exhibition is available here


The Statue of Liberty is probably the most famous repousséd object in the world (it’s also an awful lot bigger than my work!).
