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.
