Darren Powles

Darren's creations are all made from aerated concrete breeze blocks, the majority of which are from reclaimed sources.

He carves each piece by hand using traditional tools.  All the pieces he creates, including the heads and figures, have their own uniqueness and individuality. His influences and styles are constantly developing.

 "I enjoy creating pieces that have a pleasing presence and capture a sentiment. I like my work to have movement, to explore the contrast between curves and straight edges. The finished piece is deliberately tactile in nature, inviting the viewer closer to feel the smoothness of the material."
