Derek first got interested in copperwork at school. After leaving I got involved with art students who gave me a different outlook on certain aspects of life. The reality of life took over, I started work in steel construction eg oil refineries shipyards etc. Most northerly point, Firth of Forth; most southern point, Johannesburg.
When I retired copper work became a hobby. I bought a couple of domestic hot water tanks from a scrapyard. That was the start, then I found a book on Ganutell. This I incorporated into some of my copperwork.
