John Allen Sculptor

The more aliveness I can create,

the more aliveness I feel inside.

My sculptures are an expression of my inner journey

There has always been something magical for me about weathered wood – I’ve been collecting it for decades. When I discovered that the gnarlier it is the more beautiful can be the twists of its grain, I started using it in sculpture. I’ve been working wood for more than 50 years but it wasn’t until recent years that it has taken centre stage in my work.
