Mick Kirkby-Geddes, thats me, a metal sculptor. Born in Sheffield, I now live just outside Holmfirth in the Pennines of West Yorkshire. I’m based in the old mechanics workshop of a textile mill.

I finished a three year Fine Art Degree at Leeds in 1988 then set out on my own as a sculptor and haven’t done anything else since. It was at Leeds that I started using scrap metal because the materials budget ran out and I’ve never looked back since.

I make sculptures to go inside and outside, public art and commissions. Sometimes I work in schools as my sculptures appeal to kids. Its great to work with them, pass on your skills, show them what artists do but its always nice to go back to my nice quiet workshop again afterwards.
