Underwraps, Aluminium/Plastic Pipe/Polystyrene

Lightweight Structure

My first training in making large structures came when working in Carnival and so the concern for weight & balance has always been a priority when building.

This means I’ve tried to develop the use of a variety of materials in the trade off between strength, movement and lightness. These include carbon/glass fibre rod, plastics, Metals and wood.

Great time is spent on breakdown & storage as often awkward or big pieces have to be efficiently stored or transported.
