Len Castle: Making the Molecules Dance

His work epitomises its vitality, its deeply indigenous origins and the sophistication of its craftsmanship and artistry.

He exhibited world-wide, including Australia, Taiwan, Japan, the Netherlands, Sweden, USA and England (at the Victoria and Albert Museum). He has been described as a 'national treasure'.
