Inspirational Italy

I have just returned from an AMAZING week travelling in Tuscany taking in the stunning architecture on every street. The skill involved in designing the buildngs by architects such a  Brunelleschi was staggering but the skilled craftspeople who brought those designs to life was every bit as incredible.

Here' s just a taste of what I saw, all very  inspirational and now I'm itching to get back in the workshop and start carving away again! Plenty to be getting on with with a move away from lettering this week, a set of bookends with a hop theme (similar to my beam carvings at Dumfries House) and plans for a decorative panel are also underway.
