Lots of lovely new carvings for sale.

6 September, 2017 – 4:26 pm

I have been busy quarrying, drawing, designing, carving and gilding over the last 6wks. Mingled with children’s carving activities and I have also hand carved and completed a wide variety of hand carved commissions, including house signs, Hares and even a Blackbird, these photos can be found in my gallery. At the moment I am working to a 10wk waiting list for commissions so if you haven’t already commissioned your Christmas gifts then please get in touch soon.
I am currently designing and carving my Christmas selection and some lovely new designs to inspire you, so watch this space.

Here is a selection of my latest carvings available to buy in my shop.

Acorns and Oak leaves are found throughout the Forest of Dean so what better to carve in this beautiful Forest of Dean sandstone.

I carvedthis lovely girls face in a piece of stone that I rescued from the scrap pile at the Llanthony Secunda Priory and would have been part of a larger piece, originally on the brick stable block, it still has the original tooling on the back. Cotswold limestone, Minchinhampton or Painswick.

The plaited leaves are carved in Tetbury limestone, I have finished this carving with some simple flowers.

I love designing and carving fun words, here are my latest, carved in Forest of Dean sandstone and finished with 23 3/4 carat gold leaf. this finish does make them more expensive but ultimately lasts longer.

My clocks are carved in a variety of shapes and sizes depending on the pieces of random stone that I choose. I am currently waiting for a delivery of clock mechanisms to finish off some more that I have made.

I have been working from my drawings of a broken seashell and these are the photos of my latest carving.

All of these carvings can be carved to your specification; stone type, font style, and finish. You can choose from a wide selection of designs that I have already drawn in my extensive sketchbooks, the price depends on the size, stone type and finish but I am happy to design something to suit any budget. Larger pieces and multiple words do incur a design fee but this is to cover my time and cost obviously depends on how much time.

If you are planning a visit please check my opening times.

I look forward to hearing from you.
