Wood Carvings

A selection of my wood carvings. Each piece is a unique, one off, hand carved item.

My style of carving is natural and freehand predominantly using knives and chisels after initial roughing out. I don't believe in overworking my pieces to a clinical, pristine finish such as you might find on cheap, machine produced items on the high street. I often work from found pieces of wood which may have twisted and cracked as they weathered and dried naturally.

I like to leave the occasional old scar as well as some formed during the process of carving, to give each piece a direct connection back to my hands and to hint at the previous life of the piece of wood.
