Neil Harris
‘People’s Prize Winner 2013’
4 October-2 January

Neil’s larger than life, unique, metal sculptures are all made in his home studio. He works from an initial idea, which evolves as the piece is welded together, the process feeding the idea. The mythical, fantasy and extinct have always interested Neil and feature in many of his pieces.
His work includes a 6ft parrot and a mother and baby Dodo!
