Denis O'Connor sculptor helping Gregory secure his sculpture

Big Man 2015

When you need assistance, what could be better than a “big man”, international sculptor Denis O’Connor devising ways to exhibit my sculpture during its construction. It came down to using a 5mm steel round bar to be threaded through, and then sealed into place, which allows for a high tensile steel wire to hold the piece in mid-air.

After the experiments worked out , the piece was brought down for finishing. If you want to see it finished then go to the 360 degree exhibition from the 30 th of May at Britannia Mill Studios, Mackworth Rd, Derby open from 10 am daily. for a couple of weeks.
