He has been a member of the Ironbridge Open Air Museum of Steel Sculpture's Furnace Crew in Coalbrookdale, England for the past seven years.

"The artwork I produce is inspired from life. I use my drawings as a tool to help me break down for to its basic elements. Recreating the drawings in real space produces a visual story in the round. Speaking through form." Gerard Masse - Sculptor
