Helen Denerley

My sculptures are made from scrap metal using relics of the horse-drawn day of agriculture, alongside discarded modern machinery. Some of the parts have been made by blacksmiths and used to farm the land until they are worn out. In Strathdon I am surrounded by life, people, plants animals and birds all living within the cycle of the changing seasons. This combination of material and subject becomes my sculpture, breathing new life into old metal.
