I hope you're all safe and warm and no damage from #StormArwen

If some of your trees did take a battering though, don't worry. Some of my best-loved sculptures came about by transforming storm-damaged trees. Just look at the Giant Hand of Vyrnwy and the Dragon of Bethesda! https://t.co/OMaNiAD4JK

Only going back to March this year for #ThrowbackThursday today and this horse bench in its final stages... https://t.co/YaeUwcsKzY treecarving photo
This lady carrying a creel of peat is one of my more recent sculptures and seemed like a good choice for #womancrushwednesday. She'll be joining the pony trap driver soon up in Stornoway, Lewis & Harris. https://t.co/Szl4Y8FL8V treecarving photo
This week's #TuesdayTip is a cheeky one!
If you're Christmas shopping, take a look at Chainsaw & Brush! Chainsaw & Brush is my collaboration with the talented @Amanda19555373 bringing my sculptures to homes with limited edition prints of her paintings. https://t.co/DmnLx8lh0Q https://t.co/lge38vvZgB

Did you see yesterday's flashback to my lion at The Lion Brasserie, East Bergholt?
We popped in yesterday (great food - thank you
@GMjamesbarber
) & got photos of both of my sculptures. They're ageing nicely & gaining more character & majesty as the wood changes colour https://t.co/GZvRAn2B9I

If some of your trees did take a battering though, I recommend Treetech N W, Ltd if you need a tree surgeon for an assessment or work on them. And don't forget, some of my best-loved sculptures came about by transforming storm-damaged trees! A sculpture is a great way to allow a tree to live again as a piece of art. just like the Giant Hand of Vyrnwy and the Dragon of Bethesda...

Did you see my flashback yesterday to my lion at The Lion Brasserie ?
We actually popped in yesterday (great food, definitely check it out if you are in the East Bergholt area!) and got some photos of all two of my lion sculptures. They're all ageing nicely, and gaining more character and majesty!

Here are the photos of my Bill Badger sculpture and bench shared in the blog yesterday. He was a really interesting commission - something different to the pieces I've done before, and a lovely flashback to reading Rupert Bear as a kid!
