Mark Walker started his journey with bikes at the age of 14 when his father dragged an old Outfit home that he found (motorbike and sidecar) this opened up a whole world for this Print impaired young man. Mark started to pull the bike apart and work it out – soon after convincing his mother he needed a lathe.
In the 1970’s he built a Top Fuel Drag Bike called The “MW Special” whole bike, whole engine, he kept this bike on the track and continued its developments for 30 years…
…it was round 2000 he decided he had enough of the rules of racing and he started to get creative and build what he wanted to build.
Starting with “BIG NED – the Ultimate Street Fighter” – a 3LT V-twin Rotary Valve… carving the engine out of solid aluminium.. inspiration for this build was Australian Artist Sidney Nolan’s paintings of NED KELLY – the famous bush ranger.
There is now Five Bespoke Motorcycles exhibited with Handmade Engines. Art That Runs.
Of late Mark has also been creating Curious Gadgetry with Found Objects… Recycled, Restored and Resurrected into Exquisite Moving Sculptures.
Erika has a love of little Trinket Boxes – often lined with vintage velvet, they are small secret spaces… jewellery for the dressing table…
also hollow form Jewellery…. Poison Rings … and Power Animal Pendants…..Using Silver, Copper and Brass.
Recently moving more into the world of Casting and Also Found Objects.
