Leigh Dyer – Hastings Sculptor
Leigh Dyer is an artist based in Hastings who creates amazing and beautiful sculptures using metalwork.
I went to photograph him in his studio last week.
He is almost at the end of an eighteen month project creating a new sculpture for the Eccentric Winkle Club to be installed on Winkle Island in the Old Town in a month or two. It is a giant winkle shell perched above various fish, pebbles and beach debris.
The idea is to put a coin in the winkle and as it falls down the middle it hits a specially made bell and rings before being collected in a safe box within the sculpture (for charity).
