Starting Monday with a timelapse. This one is from 2019 when I was on Home is Where the Art is presented by @MrNickKnowles
I didn't win but it was a fun piece and a brilliant experience! https://t.co/wSWqPSiJKy

For #NationalDaughtersDay I thought I'd share my Oak father and daughter. The two stand on different fields on the same estate in Surrey, with the father looking towards his daughter. https://t.co/Ufru8TDavl treecarving photo

Did you see the post this week from @RCharityLpool about the sculpture Simon donated for their annual ball to raise funds for @LivHospitals ? Find out more about it (including how you can place a bid even without being at the ball) in this week's blog.

Along with the Old Oak Father, this guy is another of my sculptures that begs to be a #WednesdayWisdom post.
He's one of a collection of figures in this sculpture in North Wales. My client built a gazebo around it, so now guests can enjoy the sculpture both rain or shine! https://t.co/HtJKy5NTZK

And just like that, it's officially Autumn!
My woodland sculpture trails take on a whole new look surrounded by the red & orange leaves. You can find this wolf as part of the trail at Fforest Fawr (Tongwynlais) & other trails at Meadow Park, Ellesmere Port & Pages Wood, Havering https://t.co/tmW8gIgxK9

#TuesdayTip !

You don't need loads of expensive kit to start chainsaw carving. A small saw like the @stihl_GB MS181 (petrol) or MSA 200 (battery - pictured below) with a standard bar will do nicely!
