The first half of 2013 has been an interesting and busy time with the designing and making of work for new clients like the National Trust, Haven Holiday parks and Jelsons ltd the house builders. I have also been fortunate to have the opportunity to create some new pieces for return clients like the Woodland Trust and Corby Borough Council. Below is an image of the second of the Corby Giants he is loosely based on Tree Beard from Lord of The Rings and stands around 6 metres tall, he is carved into a standing, dead oak tree.
I also Now have a facebook page for my art work so if you would like to be kept up to date with the more interesting projects as I finishes them then please follow this link Peters Facebook Page and like the page.
2012 was a busy year seeing chainsaw sculpture commissions from The university of Birmingham, The house builders Taylor Wimpy, several schools, country parks , private clients and I was especially pleased not only to continue my resedency at beacon Hill adding to the existing sculpture there but also to be asked back to Camptom woods In Bedford to work on the second phase of the sculpture trails there. To see my latest wood sculptures click on the various sculpture galleries where you will be able to enjoy the range of work I have produced.
In March 2011, I began a year long residency at Leicestershire’s Beacon Hill Country Park, where I have been commissioned to work on several outdoor chainsaw carvings, drawing inspiration from the diverse, historic and beautiful surroundings of the country park. If you would like to come and have a look, you can find me alongside the path leading away from the Upper Car Park. I have a range of sculptures on display, available to purchase, but please check that I am on site by calling 07861698485.
I am often asked to participate in country-wide chainsawing demonstrations, so if you would like to meet me and see me in action (with a chance of winning one of my unique pieces), find out the locations of the chainsawing demonstrations during 2011.
