Period Carving & Restoration

BEFORE the restoration

Landmark Trust Restoration Project

This was a project funded by the National Lottery to restore the Queen Anne's Summer House in the Shuttleworth Old Estate, Old Warden, Bedfordshire.  I designed the corbels and carved one while my colleague carved the other.  They are carved in Quebec yellow pine and painted white.

Drawing, modelling and carving often feed into each other within my practice.

Stained lime wood to give the effect of walnut.
