Cooper, Darryl

Junk Sculptor

Darryl has returned to Herberton after teaching at Mount Isa School of the Air for eighteen years.  His interests include photography, journalism, woodwork and metal sculpture.  He is a self taught blacksmith.

Creating sculpture from junk requires imagination and an ability to think outside conventional lines.

Darryl can see that a broken shifting spanner can become a lizard’s head, a clutch fork will transform into the jaw of a crocodile and a broken pair of pliers can make the head of an antelope.
