Latest make was a fishing boat wall hanging. I enjoy making wall hangings as there's so many things you can design and everyone has a wall to hang things from.
I've added a number of original sculptures to the website in the last few weeks. It's always fun to create unique pieces. Lots of new nature based wall hangings. Pictured below are just a few.
My latest custom order was for a wall hanging featuring some roses. Here are pictures of my design and the finished piece. The flowers were stained with alcohol ink which really makes them pop. When coated with lacquer they have an almost metallic sheen.
Well what with one thing and another it's been a funny old year. For me it was a major milestone as I resigned from my job to make sculptures full time. It's been a dream for quite a while to be my own boss so I eventually decided to take the plunge as the pandemic made me realise life really is too short not to do what you want. I'm hoping to rent a unit early next year so I'll be able to concentrate on my work better than from my current shed where space is limited. Over the year...
While some people turn to drinking alcohol, I've turned to dying copper with it, namely in the form of alcohol ink. So far I've coloured some poppies and roses, and the effect is really nice, almost like a metallic sheen.
