The three pieces completed!
My customer provided me with the names and dates in her own handwriting which I drew as closely as I could onto the two acorns-paying careful attention to match the character of the 2 men with the different acorns!
She didn’t want the engraving to be too noticeable and therefore I didn’t carve the letters too big or paint them afterwards.
The carvings were placed in an area of significance in the garden, a large Oak tree laying on it’s side, a giant sandstone Oak leaf which has lain there for years waiting for acorns to accompany it and of course candles lit in remembrance of loved ones.
I hope you like these-I think they have been my favourite commission to date.
