We are so impressed with our sculpture, completed on time and finished to a really high quality. We will enjoy looking at this in the years to come. A wonderful addition to our collection. Thank you.
Jennifer Smith, Massachusetts, USA
Thanks Pete! We are so pleased with our new sculpture, it really transforms the garden. It looks really great from all angles and looks particularly striking when the sun catches it. Thanks for delivering it to us ahead of time. We’ll now be thinking of where we can place another!
Margot McKensie, Fife, Scotland
We are absolutely delighted with our sculptures, they look amazing. The weather today is just glorious, allowing me to take in the changes, what with the shadows and reflections, they look different from every angle, each time you look at them, fantastic!

Feedback from public commissioners:
Cyclepath Sculptures South Gloucestershire Council
“Thanks to Pete for all his hard work and perseverance in completing this project for us. The schools he worked with were truly enthused by his approach and the opportunity to see their work installed on the cycle track. He really worked over and above the original brief to ensure the best outcome possible.”
Alison Catlin, Arts Development Officer, South Gloucestershire Council.
Luton-Dunstable Sculptures – Bedfordshire Council
Pete is very organised and professional. He takes a lot of initiative and has a good overview of the entire public art process. He was very good at communication with all stakeholders involved.
Pete worked on the Luton Dunstable Busway project for 18 months. This was a project to create five large public artworks reflecting elements of contemporary history. As part of the project he organised and delivered a series of workshops for local schools. Pete also conducted a number of public consultations with the local community.
Pete delivered five outstanding large scale stainless steel sculpture. The designs were striking and reflected the theme very well. Pete also listened and incorporated elements into the design from the workshops and consultations. The sculptures were fabricated to an extremely high standard, produced on time and delivered great value for money. The installation of the artworks went very smoothly and they have now become part of the local landscape. Pete documented the whole project on a dedicated website that he created which was a great way to keep the entire process visible and engaging.
It was a pleasure to work with Pete on this project and we would highly recommend him for other Public Art projects.

Horfield Health Centre, Bristol
We commissioned Pete to transform the front of our Health Centre and adjoining pharmacy. His brief was to make work that was attractive, appropriate and robust. Once again he has produced a beautiful and imaginative work. Staff, patients and most importantly our neighbours love it. It not only improves the Health Centre but brings life and colour to the whole road. The process of planning in consultation with us was easy and fun. The work was installed quickly and efficiently. It has been lovely to work with such an inspired and reliable local artist and we are all delighted with the final result. As part of the project Pete mentored Dutch artist Remco Kingsman which was a successful collaboration and learning experience for Remco.

Public Library Sculpture – Poole Council
Pete was selected for the Hamworthy Library commission on the evidence and quality of his diverse practice in previous commissions and the range of his concepts and designs employed. His approach to school and community workshops was refreshing and his methods of creative involvement; effective and inspiring during the project’s concept design stages. This preparatory work enabled Peter to design a series of bold and striking interventions which have been installed both inside the building and within the landscaped area outside. The selection panel found Peter a pleasure to work with, due to his organisational skills and professionalism and we have been very pleased with the value for money that his involvement in this commission has demonstrated.
