New Chewton Sculpture
April 25, 2019

Richard Yates, a local sculptor, has made another carving of a Chewton identity.

This time, the subject is Rod Hadfield, who is well known in the hot rodding industry as the driving force behind making Castlemaine the Street Rod Capital of Australia.

I am not a motoring enthusiast but that didn’t stop me from heading out to see the display which has been built at the entrance to Hadfield’s Hot Rods workshop and museum yesterday, Wednesday.

The carvings of Rod and his dog, Codie, are placed within the setting of an old workshop.

 

Rod is depicted posing with an unrestored Ford.

 

 

I was intrigued to see Richard had created pockets in the overalls which could accommodate tools.

 

Rod’s canine companion keeps a watchful eye.

This is the fifth sculpture Richard has created for Chewton.
