Mick Henson Environmental Artist

Northamptonshire artist Mick Henson has from the very beginning of his artistic career made a conscious decision to only use recycled or discarded material for his sculptures. Keeping the environmental impact of his work to a minimum, in the past he’s used old conveyor beds, racking beams, forklift used parts, fire extinguishers, old heating systems parts and out of date resin. This is not only environmentally friendly and sustainable it makes complete economical sense.

He began his career in the Wellingborough area of Northants as a welder fabricator and general engineer, so it was only natural that his early work used steel and fibreglass. He has now moved from his old studio at Barton Hall Studios to Glebe Farm Equestrian Centre in Bozeat.

Mick Henson’s steel and fibreglass sculptures can be found outside public buildings, gardens and galleries in Northamptonshire as well as in the grounds of Wicksteed Park in Kettering and surrounding areas.

he’s work is for the enjoyment of the community and the enrichment of the local environment.
