Deconstructing football boots, jab pads and dancing rubber gloves; every object deserves some attention, 15 minutes of fame.

What would we be without objects? They fill our lives.
Pretty and practical, roses and daises are normally used as symbolic objects but they deserve a bit of attention and recognition in their own right.

Boxing glove

I like boxing gloves. Not only are they tools, they are made up of layers of materials, cut-to-size and stitched together to make the final object.

I’m about to start deconstructing a pair of boxing gloves, work that will be in my next exhibition at 242 gallery.
