Michael Fabricant has praised the work of local artist and metal worker Keith Ashby.
Using photographs, he has sculpted a bust of Michael using cutlery including knives, forks, and spoons as well as a whisk, collander, and a cheese grater.
Michael says “This is the most original work of art I have seen for a long time! I understand that local cutlers Arthur Price were supplied some of the forks, spoons and knives while friends provided other materials.
“Keith has an incredible talent and it was a lovely surprise to see this. It came completely out of the blue and was like looking in the mirror – except I was made of spoons!”
