Born in London and worked initially as a glass blower.
In 1959, during Wall's final years in St Ives, he produced a small scale sculpture, Standing Figure, that came back on to the market at the Paisnel Gallery in 2009 (cat no 27, illus). This was created at the same time as he was acting as an assistant to Barbara HEPWORTH, and demonstrates his constructivist mode of formal work.
