Tims studio, sculpture trail and garden gallery is in the Nillumbik suburb of The Bend of Islands and many of his pieces are in the private collections of Nillumbik residents.
Tim was part of the Nillumbik artist Open Studio program for 8 years and held a position on the reference group for 5 years.
He has been involved in many grants and public art projects within the Nillumbik Shire.
A background in the building industry has given brutalist metal sculptor Tim Read from Tread Sculpulptures a strong technical foundation from which he can create form. Working from his studio in the conservation area of The Bend Of Islands Tims passion is working with reclaimed materials - especially steel.
Tim specialises in finding beauty in industrial waste or objects that have been discarded and reimagining them working from a philosophy of not allowing somethings past to define its future.
His sculptural creations range from those that engage the viewer in social commentary to the whimsical , decorative or functional.
Tims has created a sculpture trail through the 5 aces of native bush on his riverbank property where he is open to the public by appointment Monday to Saturday.
