Roy Dutton loves to work with reclaimed or found objects and breathing new life into them with alternative uses. He has a humorous take on objects, creating sculptural pieces to surprise and amaze.
'I have been making sculptures from mainly reclaimed or found objects as a living for about eight years. It all started whilst recovering from illness.
I found myself with plenty of time on my hands but low on finances, hence trying to create work from discarded scrap metal to give me more scope. Lately the metal side seems to be taking over from the wood.
I like to think my work contains a degree of my own sense of humour. I love giving things a new lease of life, sometimes in a way they were never intended to. If it makes you smile then it's worked.'
