I can design and carve a range of work, in various stone types and sizes. I am happy to consider any commissions. Keeping you updated on the work in progress with photographs and visits to the workshop. I am also able to install pieces where necessary.
I often find commissions help me to develop new untried areas of my art, as with this life-size bust carved in French limestone and inspired by a charcoal sketch.
The abstract heads I love to make can be adapted to represent your choice of elements.
Yoga mudras can be designed in various combinations.
Family below was first conceived from a few descriptive words and developed with the client. It’s very collaborative, where both parties contribute to the final creation. A very satisfying process producing a unique and personal sculpture.
Alternatively, I can produce pieces inspired by my previously created sculptures with subtle differences to maintain their unique status.
Alternatively a traditional theme or classic design can be re-interpreted.
The Green kings
Below is a collaboration of design with the Holly King on one side and the Oak King on the other, as personifications of the Summer and Winter, enabling the piece when displayed upright to be rotated at the Solstice to reflect the seasonal cycle of the year. The stone was coloured with pigments and gold leaf.
