Having been raised on a farm and with family still in the industry, farming is in my blood. I love to carve animals that have been part of my life and that are a beautiful sight in our countryside.
An Ancient British breed stands strong and proudly next to an eroded monument of our farming past, the dry-stone wall an art form in itself.
Mix of woods including Oak, Lime, Pine & Ash.
'Tufty' The Aberdeen Angus
'Tufty' so called by small tuft of hair that sticks up on her head. A commission piece for a farmer to give to his daughter, based on their shared love of their long serving Aberdeen Angus cow.
A gentle and peaceful cow lays down to rest. This was a commission piece for a farming family who tragically lost their son in his prime. His favourite breed of cattle was the Guernsey, this piece was made as a fitting tribute to remember him by.
This was made from Lime wood on an Elm base.
Strong and beautiful is the Charolais Bull. Two commissions came from this Sculpture, one for a local farmer to present to his retired father in memory of his favourite bull. The second was by the owners of the Bull who was used as reference in the making of the sculptures.
