Inlaying silver into a box lid

Inlaying the silver Diamond into to the lid of the bottle box was a fun challenge, I chiseled out the recess for the 2mm thick silver very gradually so to achieve a snug fit. The box lid with the silver mount was then sanded flush and wax polished.

Benches

I have made two benches to accompany some of my sculpture at the RHS show in Malvern 8th-11th May 2014. They are nearing completion and I am really pleased with how they turned out. both are made from Billet Steel and Elm and are exceptionally heavy (built to last) these designs will be available to order after the show. Please email me for more information.

Cuttle

Started work on a piece of work for New Designers One Year On, this will be a large Steampunk inspired Cuttlefish. Here I have began carving the main part of the form from Burr Maple, I really like the swirling pattern of this wood. The head and tentacle/leg sections will be a separate element made of metal and mixed media and will be attached later.

Carving out a large angler fish.

After finishing up with my little Burr wood Angler fish I really liked the idea of doing a much, much larger one and give it all the steampunk trimmings!

It is currently in a rough carved state, I am really pleased with how the shape is developing. Next step is to define the shape and begin to carve out detail, then it will be on to the metalworking.
