Carved from a 12ft standing tree trunk in the clients garden. It was just going to be the caterpillar, but when I stripped the bark from a protruding branch, I found a lovely wave shape underneath. The client just happened to be there, and I said without hesitation “That could be Alice’s hair”. It took some squeezing of Alice’s body and the mushroom to get out of the tree trunk. There was some head scratching and playing with plasticine before I could get the idea right in my head.
