Right now, I’m in Japan! The great Keiji Kidokoro invited me to the town of Taka to create sculptures for one of Japan’s largest lavender gardens (pictured above). So, from now until December 10th, we’ll be working together on a public art display and a range of new carvings. Below is a sketch of an idea I’m working on at the minute.

I’m back in the UK after my amazing trip to Japan. Really enjoyed the whole experience, and really proud of the carvings I worked on out there. Come the New Year, I’ve got some more exciting projects lined up, so stay tuned here and/or on myFacebook page – which, by the way, has just passed six-thousand likes!
