Figurative Carvings

I am a wood sculptor wood carver. Figurative carving has been a part of my professional practice for about 40 years.  I like the challenge of the human figure, and the dynamics and body language that a group carving provides. Also, I take on board Henry Moore’s idea that “sculpture should be interesting from each of the 360 degrees of the compass”.   I have simplified this to “there should not be an obvious front and back”. There is a fascination with finding figures and stories inside a log.   All of the work below is not for sale.    It is either already in a client’s collection. or it is my own collection of the work I keep because it is whereI have done my learning and I refer to them frequently.
