Happy New Year, As you can see I am progressing well with this commission to carve a Brown Bear eating a fish.
I have drilled under his chin, that really took some doing as the stone is pretty hard but I am managing to dig out the stone to show off his belly full of Salmon.
I estimate another 10 days work which will be done between carving other commissions so the next batch of photos will be to the finish.
I have some house names and numbers to work on as well as some more sculptural commissions, carved out of Forest of Dean sandstone, Tetbury limestone and Portland limestone but there is always space for more commissions so if you have any project you would like to discuss please come in for a chat
I am also working on designs for a War memorial for a Church in The Forest of Dean, it will have some detailed carving of a first and second World War soldier carved in relief as well as a substantial amount of letter cutting and masonry. I will use Portland limestone and Forest of Dean Sandstone.
If you would like to see the designs please pop in and have a look, if I do get this commission it will be about 6mths work in 2018 and would be a huge honour to help commemorate those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.
I don’t have it yet and the next stage is to provide a quote and finalise the design to present to the committee.
I look forward to welcoming you to my workshop.
