Experience the timeless beauty of these individually hand-carved sculptures which are crafted at many of the shows this year. Carvings are available to buy and if you do, they create a lasting impression in your home, conservatory or garden.
Each piece is carved from reclaimed timber from a number of sustainable sources throughout England. The wood is hand selected from sawmills, salvage, tree surgery and garden clearance specialists for its character, colour and suitability for carving.
This year a new type of chainsaw carving has been introduced to run along side the more familiar carvers. In the Sculpture & Chainsaw Art Studio, carvers skilfully shape the wood by following the natural form & grain, to create unique art forms.
