Angels made from split and carved silver birch wood.
The wood is left as from the knife. The work is not sanded, stained or varnished.
Just riven then carved.

The ‘big’ size is about 12 inches from top to bottom and the ‘small’ one about 10 inches.
The candle holder is decorative brass and both are made to take a 5mm birthday cake sized candle.
They hang, like life, by a thread.

They cost from £100.

  A very small selection from those made for my own amusement or as teaching aids for the Theatre Design students at Nottingham and (very) occasionally on commission.

  Paper Mâché rod figures.
These were designed as prototypes for student workshop tasks. The mechanism is a pistol grip with a turning, nodding head. An example is shown HERE and another HERE.
