Wallcot carvings raised thousands for charity
The Tortoise and the Jaguar Bench call Amazona Zoo in Cromer their home. Thousands of families and children have enjoyed these pieces. Carvings can really bring a place to life in an outdoors based business.
This was a big laylandi tree its now a big brown bear who will remainin the world for a very long time.
This telegraph pole was already in the wood before starting so it's now a pencil in Wallace mouth looking out at the Norfolk Broads.
This piece is based off of a Lyn Kiln excavated in Chelmsford (the same site where I carved Henry VIII). The kiln itself was unearthed but had to remain underground in order to preserve it but they wanted to have something in order to educate the public. They called me down in order to carve a replica, add benches and information on the area, and the kiln underneath the newly carved piece. It was my most challenging carving yet, made from an oak tree and a chainsaw.
I was given some old oak from a Thames sailing boat that had set on fire and sank in Blakeney Quay (Norfolk) nearly a hundred years ago.
With it I carved a bench from the oak, with a Thames sailing barge on one end. This lets people sit in the boat again, which is quite a beautiful thing.
Walnut tree now totem pole Wisbech
This was carved in Chelmsford, Essex in Henry VIII's old former deer park. The tree was possibly an acorn when he was alive. What a great way to use the wood they take out better than wood chipper.
Have you had a tree cut down and left with a tree stump? Or you're going to cut a tree down? Then why don't you contact me to bring it back to life so it can be enjoyed for many more years to come. I love a challenge and would love to bring some life back to your old tree.
This fantastic piece was carved out of an old oak tree that had been presented to a gold medal winner from the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games by none other than Adolf Hitler. The tree itself was hit by lightning and so I turned it into the sailing boat in which the athletes won the event. This historically significant oak tree has now become a lovely piece dedicated to those athletes.
This piece is a wildlife protection bench on which I carved all sorts of creatures from hedgehogs, to ladybirds, to earwigs. This was a fantastic carving made from a challenging piece of cedar sourced in Saxmundham. The community was so delighted by my work that they asked me to come back and carve the rest of the cedar into a rabbit bench. As well as two lovely badgers who were for their Youth Football team as their mascots.
