Once again the workshop is home to some rather large lumps of tree trunk, Sycamore this time.
One section is to become a garden sculpture of an owl (nice to see the owl theme running into 2014 already!) and the other, smaller, piece is also for the garden and will be carved with some lettering and a leaf design running around it.
And just as most of us are taking down the Christmas decorations I thought i'd just show you some tree decorations I made for the family this year with their initials gilded with 23ct gold leaf just to add an extra bit of glitz for the festive season!
One of the first finished pieces of the new year is this Art Deco style candle holder which I designed for a wedding anniversary present. Made from oak it features the motif that the couple used at their wedding and will hopefully look right at home in their new Art Deco house!
