"Iron starts with natural landform, its materials and creative intelligence.   Natural resources combined at first in simple experiment; simple yet fundamental.  As an artist this is also where I start, gathering natural materials from the land and putting it through basic process - sawing, carving, burning - to find meaningful forms."

David Nash, 2015
