Fire Fighter

Fire Fighter

“Fire Fighter” is assembled from over 130 scrapped fire extinguishers.

UK fire regulation recommends that they should be replaced every 5 years.

Making a sculpture from fire extinguishers is not only environmentally friendly they can still be used in a fun and positive way in the education of fire safety.

The fire fighter became the most difficult project I’ve ever completed, it took almost 5 years of collecting, cutting, cleaning and welding of the fire extinguishers before starting to assemble. Many times I contemplated about moving on and calling it a day, and so it was banished to the corner of the studio. But I knew it had to be completed and after a few months would be drawn back. The sculpture was finished in time for the local towns September festival in 2018.
