How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

.I am Paul Thomas a metal fusion sculptor based in Herefordshire. I create both interior
and garden sculptures l work with recycled metal such as bicycle chain, engine and tool parts. I sometimes mix my creations with stone and driftwood. Using wildlife and nature as my inspiration but also create abstract designs. My ethos is to use as much recycled material as possible in my work to be as environmentally friendly as I can. My sculptures range from a life-sized female
form water feature to an Eagle Ray made from metal nuts and bicycle chain. Each piece is
individually designed due to the nature of the materials I source. I have also undertaken
commissions such as a Leopard made from bicycle chain and a Spitfire using motor
vehicle parts. These can be seen on my website
www.paulsmetalcrafting.com, there is a link on the website to my paulsmetalcrafting

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

It allows me to express myself as I see the world. Sometimes just by recognising the beauty in nature and trying to create objects that reflect that through the medium of ordinary metal object such a bicycle chain, old workshop tools or motor vehicle engine parts. I love exploring my imagination and seeing where it takes me.
