1. Adrift: hand-made in creamy Carrara marble, this was such hard work but, hey, I was in Italy! (Arco Arte workshop). Click to enlarge photos.

3. Foot of Clay: My lumpy foot inspired my very first sculpture.

7. Seuss Time: This working clock is hollow and inspired by Dr Seuss designs.

8. Fallen Angel: Mt Somers stone, which I later fiddled with and it broke.
