Inspired by the Portuguese word ‘inutil’ (without use, pronounced with a strong acent on the ‘u’ and an ‘l’ so soft it is almost a ‘u’), I like to make sculptures of items that normally are functional, but with the function removed, we get to emphasise the beauty of the form.

So see here musical instruments, toys, garden implements, each a form without use. Just for the heck of it.

Trumpet, 53cm, hollow tubes, one very flat note can be blown. SOLD.
