Milton’s Gate

2015 | Salvaged wood wall piece
60 cm x 60 cm x 15 cm

Milton was my friend Gay’s dog, a big black Lurcher who lived down the road from us. When he died she gave me the gate that she used to keep him out of her office – its wood was old and worn. I used it to make this piece and I enjoy the play with the title as most people think I’m referring to Milton and Paradise Lost!
