Custom Carvings for Emotional Events

Custom Carvings for Emotional Events 150 150 Simon O'Rourke

I carve statues, signs, jewelry, and everything in between.  There’s carving for fun projects, competitions, and demonstrations. I also do custom carvings for emotional events. There’s a good variety, and balance to my current commissions. I think that’s best exemplified through these two pieces:

An elephant, in ash, as a memorial for a young lad killed in a motorbike accident. The carving actually holds his ashes, inside.

And then there’s this! It’s a set of three Wallace and Gromit themed sculptures that brought tears to a birthday girl’s eyes! A very different reason for crying to the elephant!

It really is a privilege, to do the job I do. I’m thankful I get to spread a little happiness, beauty, and comfort through art.
