The statue is made from cutlery including knives, forks and spoons, as well as other cooking utensils such as a whisk, colander and a cheese grater.

Keith has an incredible talent and it was a lovely surprise to see this.

It came completely out of the blue and was like looking in the mirror - except I was made of spoons!"
