One of my favourite projects is to create a sculpture from rejected offcuts, reclamation timber or stone, and sometimes even redundant old furniture. To take what can be beautiful, but unwanted, materials and give them a fresh start as a 'New Beginning' sculpture, is a really fulfilling passion.

These sculptures are for sale on a first come first served basis, I do not take orders on 'New Beginnings'. If interested in purchasing one of these pieces, or have any questions, please email me on mjcrooksculptures@gmail.com

NEW COUPLE

Here I have used an one of my own offcuts of cherry wood and a hard wood leg of a old officers mess table that was heading for the fire pit. These have been sculpted to fit together and set on an old scrap of Bath stone. The dark wood is possibly Teak but when using recycled wood it is impossible to guarantee.

FOREVER

I took a small offcut of Iroko wood and a scrap of Bath stone and created this little, twisting sculpture which incorporates a moebius ring effect and so the piece appears to have just one side. A finger can be run round the surface forever.

'Eternal embrace

This design has been in the back of my mind for a while and when I saw an offcut of Poplar wood in a local timber yard it was time to try it. The Bath stone base is also from the scrap bin. Together they made a new sculpture which someone will hopefully cherish for years to come.

This concept of two vague entities in a twisted ribbon of wood that creates moebius ring effect of a surface going on for eternity is a design I intend to return to.
