Wall Art

Weaxan - British Wildflowers

Height 29cm X Width 46cm X Depth 3.5cm

Weaxan is an old English word meaning "to grow" which I felt was very apt for this piece. Made at a time when I was exploring my techniques to see how complicated I could get with my work.

It features an array of British Wildflowers, trees and insects. A very welcoming sight on the wall it, without fail, promotes discussion every time someone walks by. 

Carefully carved from lime wood and finished with oil paints.

Price £750 (+ P&P)

Black Shuck & Saw

Height 16cm X Width 12cm X Depth 2.5cm

A fantasy pub name and sign I carved using the Suffolk legend of the Black Shuck as the centre piece. On the 4th of Augest, 1577, the Black Shuck was said to have burst through the doors of churches in Bungay and Blythburgh, killing two people. As it left the church in Blythburgh the demon dog left scorch marks on the North Door which are still said to be seen to this day. 

Carefully carved from lime wood and finished with oil paints.

Woolpit Lion

Height 15cm X Width 11.5cm X Depth 5cm

This lion is my interpretation of a very similar lion head on the wooden pump in the village of Woolpit, Suffolk. The carving around the pump itself is well worth seeing, each corner depicting a different queen and between those queens, this lions head.

I had to take photos of the original lion and create a clay sculpture to get the sizes and dimensions to my liking.

Carefully carved from oak and finished with boiled linseed oil and wax.

Sculpture

The Loschy Dragon

Height 23cm X Width 30cm X Depth 26cm

The sad tale of the Loschy Dragon reaches it's dramatic peak in this carving. Peter Loschy heard of a dragon that was constricting its victims, so he decided to wear a suit of bladed armour to cut it as it coiled around him. His plan worked, lumps of flesh falling off the dragon as it tried to constrict him. However, as soon as the dragon rolled and slithered back over it's lost flesh it regenerated.

 

His faithful dog, upon realising this problem, then picked up the pieces of flesh and dropped them a mile away, taking away the dragon's power of regeneration.

Peter finally managed to deal the final blow and cut off the dragon's head, all thanks to the quick thinking of his loyal companion. As his dog jumped up and celebrated with Peter, licking his face in excitement, the knight dropped dead. For on the dogs breath was a deadly poison consumed from the dragons breath...the hero canine died soon after. Their remains are said to be in Nunnington Church in Yorkshire near to where the encounter took place.

Carefully carved from oak and walnut and finished with boiled linseed oil.

King of the East Angles

Height 31.5cm X Width 21cm X Depth 12cm

King Raedwald of East Anglia is the man said to have been buried in the famous Sutton Hoo burial mound in Suffolk, reigning from around 599AD to his death at around 624AD.

I created this carving based on the archaeological finds at Sutton Hoo, the famous helmet, parts of shield, belt buckle and sword were all found at the burial site. The front of the helmet is removeable to reveal the face below, and the axe and shield can also be removed.

Carefully carved from lime wood and finished with oil paints.

Reflect in Absence

Height 19.5cm X Width 11cm X Depth 23cm

This deer man was devised at a time when I was in contemplation about various things in my life, problems ahead and regrets, lost times. The body of a man combined with a stag is an attempt to show a stoic kind of reflection, sitting alone and figuring out what needs to be done.

Carefully carved from maple and finished with acrylic paints and oil.

Price £495 (+ P&P)

Short on Time

Height 20cm X Width 9cm X Depth 9cm

This hare man was made around the same time as the deer man and I think gives you an idea of how I was feeling contemplative at the time as well as rushed, and off my feet and perhaps overwhelmed. The hare element of this sculpture is to show that even the fastest of things are sometimes short on time and perhaps need to find ways to slow down and manage things with their health in mind.

 

Carefully carved from maple and finished with acrylic paints and oil.
