Acorn Commission

14 December, 2011 – 8:30 am

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.

  2. Having seen them in person I can say they were incredible and looked very heavy! 🙂

  3. Thanks Ed, I really enjoyed this commission and hope to be given the opportunity to carve some more!! Yes they were very heavy-probably about 140kg each!
