My new works include this piece, made from street sweeper blades I have collected around the City of Perth and suburbs.

Brooch for Tom

Tom Cameron was my grandfather. After training as a pilot in Canada the 40’s he came back to Perth and took a job as a street sweeper. From tending to the streets he ended up making them with his earth moving business, and helping to change how people saw them with his work with the Lions Eye Institute. He eventually had a small park named after him in the suburbs, for his charitable works.
