Jeff Thompson has made a successful career out of creating amazing sculpture out of corrugated iron. He has made corrugated iron animals, birds, cars and people. He has manipulated corrugated iron into intricate and beautiful forms.
Corrugated iron is a distinctively Australasian material. With much humour, Jeff Thomson pokes fun at our icons and puts them in the spotlight, making us look at them in a whole new light.
I have a couple of small pieces of Jeff Thompson’s corrugated iron sculpture. I would love more (although perhaps not a life-sized giraffe!)
Jeff Thomson, I love your work and I would love to come and visit your studio one day…
