About John D Joyce:
I have been sculpting now for many many years. Sculpture for me is an all consuming passion, & hopefully that still reflects in the work, both past & present. This portfolio is just a small selection of pieces from a very large body of work, spanning a couple of decades, from 2000 -2020.
I've actually been sculpting since my early 20's, so five decades in total to date! I still get the same immense joy when making, & when I am 'in the flow', not so much though when it's not going at all to plan, so many failed attempts down the years, too numerous to mention!
On reflection the work is quite diverse I know, but I make no excuses for that, as it has allowed me the freedom to create that which excites me, & fires my imagination, which crucially, I feel, reflects in the quality of the finished product.
