What have I been working on lately?

26 August, 2014 – 2:43 pm

I have had a busy few months, here are some of the projects that I have been working on for both commissions and my shop.

I have just finished carving some Bath stone pillar candle holders and as soon as I have a gap I plan to carve a pair of cube pillar candle holders with Celtic knotwork on the four faces!

There are many new carvings in the pipeline not only as commissions but also for my shop so watch this space!





Scally is finished.

Well here are the last photos of my carving of a portrait of Scally.

His owners came in on Saturday morning with Scally trotting along side them and they loved my carving which was a relief!

This commission took approximately 7 weeks from the clay model through to the finished carving and was a real test of my patience and skill.



Scally update!

Here are the latest photos of a commission to carve a Bichon Frise in Portland limestone.

As you may recollect, I started with a clay model which I made from photographs and Scally the dog, once the model was approved I cast it in plaster and have been working from this cast taking meticulous measurements.

Well now I am able to join the dots and start to take more detailed measurements to identify the details in his face and body.



What’s in my shop at the moment?

I have been creating new carvings for sale in my shop but I have too many carvings for sale to take individual photos.

So here are photos from my shop.

I can take orders for practically anything carved from most stone.

If you see something you like and would like to reserve it then I can take credit card payments over the phone.

Well this is a very tricky process and due to the interest this carving is generating it is taking a lot longer to carve;

Obviously I am progressing more each day and hope to finish him in about 10 days!
