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 these unwanted, but beautiful, 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' as each piece is a spontaneous creation. If interested in purchasing one of these pieces, or have any questions, please email me on mjcrooksculptures@gmail.com

FOREVER

I took a small offcut of poplar wood to Scotland when visiting family recently, and while there 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. The base is a piece of marble.

'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.
