Recycling scrap metal with imagination and a MIG welder, Gavin Darby of Frailloop creates metal sculpture designed mainly for the garden and other outside locations. Garden gates, business signs, office focal points and of course the unique garden animals and flowers have all come out of the Nottinghamshire based Frailloop workshop.

Another busy day with a student - with the outcomes shown in the picture. Every student day is different. I work on a one-to-one basis to build the day around the students needs. That tends to be a bit of a go with the welder - often for the student the first time. Then on to create the piece of work the student has in mind - often a little drawing and some bits of metal. This time I was presented with small bags of bits and the idea for a small animal or bird. So rather than one large piece of sculpture we had many.
If you fancy a day in the studio - call me!
