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.
