A background in the building industry has given Tim Read of Tread Sculptures, a strong technical foundation from which he can create form. After spending some time meandering through the bush sculpture track at ‘Mingalaba’, you will appreciate why Tim, would rather spend his days in his studio on the banks of the Yarra River than anywhere else.

Tim works with reclaimed steel and derives inspiration from nature, spirituality, and the materials he finds. Visitors are able to discover his artwork out in the natural bush setting, as well as wandering through his studio and the ‘boneyard’ of collected steel material.
