JOHN CREED

Welcome to my website. This aims to show you the nature and breadth of my work. My interest is across the whole spectrum of metalwork; from one-off site specific projects within the field of architecture, sculpture as public art or for the garden, to small objects for the home such as a hat and coat stand, music stand, fruit dish, or silverware for the meal table.

My work is innovative and original. It challenges conventional thought and often uses a combination of materials to achieve a concept. Ideas and process combine to explore and develop an idea to its ultimate.

I welcome enquiries from institutions, architects and from private sources. Whether the project is large or small, for me the enjoyment is creating work for a need, whether purely visual or practical.
