Longboat log burner

Commission piece. This was a surprise birthday present organised by a group of friends. Project managed from the USA with discussion and design input. Enjoyable piece to work with a good result.

Art in the Pen Carlisle

Thank you to everyone that came to Patchings and made that show so enjoyable for me. Always nice to see happy customers coming to visit and tell me how their sculptures are doing. For the first time I managed to pack up without it raining on me!

Now time to create new stock for the next event which runs on the 20th and 21st June (with a preview on the evening of the 19th) - Art in the Pen in the Borderway Auction Mart, Carlisle - and look forward to the amazing farmers breakfast available there!

Creative Recycling Gallery window

Made a delivery to House of Bystander this week, who are next door to the Creative Recycling Gallery in Chorlton, Manchester. Lovely gallery who have supported me for some time. Really pleased to see the window.

Grizedale Home

The large owl has been delivered to his new home in Grizedale, at the Grizedale Camp Site, on the edge of the famous forest sculpture trail. Should you want to visit you have a choice of yurt, camping pod or bring your tent. Great site set in wonderful countryside.

The big owl has a new home. The van is loaded and ready to go. So where are we going to?

Something small

As a change from big thing I've been having a go at some small things instead. It's quite difficult working a chunky piece of metal into a key fob, but I have created a few. Some words, some letters and some more spark plug fobs that were so popular in Harrogate.
