Born and bred in Rainbow, I have lived here most of my life, except when working around the country on various construction jobs. I have always had an interest in welding and making things on the farm. I had a thought about doing farm art but couldn’t think of anything to make. Then along came Bats for Will, so I thought I’d have a go. Bat 1 is made from a Railway spike and rods shaped and welded into the surfer Kelly Slater. Bat 2 is a cricket match between Australia and India, with the bat as the pitch. The bowler is DK Lillee, the batsman is SM Gavaskar and the wicket keeper is RW Marsh.
