Just when you think artist Jeff Thomson has used iron in every possible way, from giant outdoor sculptures to intricate lace, he's now french knitting with corrugated iron strips. At the same time he's celebrating his second win at the World of Wearable Art Awards taking out this year's open section with 'Tinker', an intricate multi coloured odd job man outfit.

His latest exhibition Leaves of Iron opens at the Northart Gallery in Auckland next Sunday.
