Mick Kirkby-Geddes is a metal sculptor who was born in Sheffield. He now lives just outside Holmfirth in the Pennines of West Yorkshire and his work is based in the old mechanics workshop of a textile mill.
Mick finished a three year Fine Art Degree at Leeds in 1988 then set out on his own as a sculptor and hasn’t done anything else since. It was at Leeds that he started using scrap metal because the materials budget ran out and he never looked back since.
He makes sculptures to go inside and outside, public art and commissions. Sometimes he works in schools as his sculptures appeal to kids. Mick thinks it’s a privilege to work with children as you can pass on your skills and show them what artists do but finds its always nice to go back to his nice quiet workshop again afterwards!
