We are a small team based in the New Forest, Hampshire. We dedicate ourselves to displaying true craftsmanship and bringing a subtle alchemy to all our projects. Our artistic beginnings and unique design perspective allow us to deliver individually tailored, innovative projects.
Above all else, we focus on producing excellence and enhancing the spaces we work on. We call it the Rushworth Promise: Honesty. Quality. Craftsmanship.
Rushworth Sculpture is founded upon principles of quality, value for money, aesthetics and pragmatism that I have developed over the years. Designing and crafting spaces that bring happiness to the lives of others is incredibly rewarding, and my work continues to enthral and inspire me, as I trust it will do for you.
Exploring the design and production of jewellery prompted the beginning of my career and my artistic instincts were awakened. This ignited a passion in me that burns to this day. I went on to enter the International Platinum Awards for Design and Manufacture, winning 2nd place.
In pursuit of my passion, I enrolled at Camberwell College of Arts, London. There the foundations of my career were laid. My skills were refined and my creativity was cultivated. I left feeling inspired with a degree in three-dimensional design.
After my academic ventures, I worked as sculptural assistant to Sir Anthony Caro for two years. The experience saw my artistic identity develop and mature. It was an enriching and enlightening position to have held.
With knowledge and experience behind me, I then set up my own sculptural studios on Eel Pie Island in the River Thames. Inhabited by artists, artisans and boat builders, the obscure yet charming island is a hub for innovation and invention.
Over the course of the subsequent seventeen years, I involved myself in the film industry, metal work, personal sculptural endeavors and building projects. I formed relationships with various architects and builders during this time and was thrust into the world of building.
My skills and ingenuity continue to mature with every new challenge I encounter, and with every challenge comes an increasing amount of love for my work.
Since moving to the New Forest, my endeavors have become primarily building projects. I have recently undertaken work on Grade 1 and some Grade 2 listed buildings including the full restoration of a Grade 2 listed barn and the interior remodeling of numerous houses. These projects have broadened my knowledge and honed my skills in traditional building methods. I am also pleased to have worked extensively with timber, having built foundation up houses and extensions.
Every project I take part in, I aim to bring some magic to. I aim for excellence, aesthetics, craftsmanship. I like to call it the Rushworth Promise.
