Carvings & Commissions

1 July, 2017 – 10:46 am

I am currently working on a number of house signs in Welsh Slate and Forest of Dean Sandstone as well as a series of carvings for sale in my studio and as commissions. 

Here’s my latest carving inspired by the sea, it is a more literal carving of the broken seashell that I have been drawing. I also have a birdbath in the photo. I am carving this in Forest of Dean Sandstone & it is one of my commissions.

As you can see I have used my angle grinder to put in the cuts both on the inside and the outside giving me a good start. I can now carry on with a series of chisels. Finally sanding it smooth. When it is wet it will bring out the beautiful greens and browns that are imdicative of this type of local sandstone.

I have a 10wk waiting list at the moment so if you would like to discuss an idea please don’t leave it too late.

Thanks for reading.

Essence of the sea

23 June, 2017 – 10:23 am

I have finished my stone carving, as you can see the curves are fluid and the shapes that I have carved give the impression of a broken seashell.

This is carved out of Tetbury limestone and is 12 x 7 x 17.5 inches. It is priced at £3650 and will be on display in my workshop until Tuesday 27th June then at the George in Newnham until the 17th July. If it is unsold it will return to my studio and be put in my shop.
