Roll out the barrels

Not everyone will know this but, Speyside, as well as being famous for its sculptor *ahem*, has also a pretty good reputation for its Scotch malt whisky. In fact, with around sixty working distilleries, it has nearly as many as the rest of Scotland combined.

NEOS 2012

 

 

I’m opening my workshop and home for this year’s North East Open Studios. There will be a few of my pieces on display – outdoors and in my new gallery for indoor pieces. Come along, meet me and see me working and claim a free cuppa and some home baking.

More details will follow as time goes on.

***UPDATE***

NEOS has been and passed and was a great success. Lots of lovely people came from all over to see me, my studio, my gallery and my work. As well as meeting some new contacts and clients, it was a very useful exercise forcing me to complete some home improvements about the place!

Although I didn’t really have many items to buy, a couple of large sales were made as well as four or five confirmed new projects as well as some very promising future commissions. I’ll certainly be doing it again next year.

Thanks to everyone who helped and to everyone who took the time to pay me a visit.

Letter-cutting in wood

Letter-cutting in wood

I don’t often get a chance to do letter-cutting in wood so I was really pleased to be commissioned to carve this large house sign. It’s carved in wych (Scots) elm and measures about four and a half feet in length. Carved into the top are two mountains which can be seen from the property.
