Heritage Craft Association Newspaper

I'm delighted to have received my box of HCA newspapers hot off the press, its the first time they've created the newspaper which will be distributed across the country. It's great to be featured amongst other craftspeople who are passionate about keeping traditional skills alive for another generation and working hard to hone their craft. Now to get distributing my copies around West Sussex...

The workshop is getting busy again at the moment with a couple of particularly exciting projects in the pipeline. The first is to be a gilded frame very similar to the one I created whilst on placement with Charlie Oldham. Like that one it has a 'kit kat' look to it but with a few design tweaks here and there to make it a truly bespoke design for the owners. The design stage has now been completed and I'm very excited now that I'm beginning to bring the design to life in wood. I can't wait to see it finished but it'll be a little while to go yet...

I've also been taking full advantage of the beautiful weather this week by putting the final touches to a coat of arms design whilst sat in the sun...this method of working is imperative to creating a successful design and must be adhered to whenever possible.

And here's a few images of my other carvings at various stages of completion including a tree sculpture, some moulding for a corner cupboard carved for the joiners Hayter and Smythe and the beginnings of a very unique 'Hound Water Bar'!!
