Some examples of my early sculptures

14 February, 2021 – 3:49 pm

I have been looking through some of my early carvings and these ones have stood out as some of my favourites.

 These two carvings always gravitated together and I was happy when they sold as a pair. They are carved out of Syreford limestone and demonstrate one of the few examples of a male face.

 ‘Sleep tight’ was carved out of a large piece of Tetbury limestone, roughly 28 x 18 x 18 inches. It had hard fossily veins through it which made it a challenging piece to carve. She was sold in 2006 and resides at a private residences in the Cotswolds.

 ‘I am the wind’ was carved out of Tetbury limestone from 2006. she was roughly 5 x 5 x 10 inches. She was sold not long after I carved her and found a home on the Island of Paxos off the Greek coast. 

I am looking forward to revisiting some of my early ideas now that my skill has reached a level that I can realise my more complicated ideas.
