Jeff Thomson is most known for his corrugated iron sculptures which are often recreations of objects such as animals, birds or flora. He also uses corrugated iron as a medium for installations such as his corrugated iron watertanks which are in fact installations of water and objects in motion. His haystacks made out of corrugated hay made for Connells Bay is an installation that verges on land art.
