In this series of large scale wood carvings, the client provides a model and a precise full-scale duplicate is hewn from a solid block of wood. The scale of each work is life-sized, with the series placing together two seemingly unrelated objects that emerge from a single piece of roughed out timber.
Rendered from a single block of Lime wood.
Rendered in solid Oak, the objects are a tiny Macaroon resting on a Martin Gamper stool.
Rendered in solid Beech, is a USM cabinet and a used condom.
Rendered in solid Lime wood, a museau sits atop a packing crate.
Hand carved in English Oak, and given an ebonised finish.
Emerging from a piece of Brown Oak is an old shoe sole and a book.
