Handcrafted. Goose woodcarving

Yesssss.

That’s what I said when I walked through the door tonight and spotted this little tile on the table.

Goose is so far one of may favourites because of the textures and those feet! We really need to start thinking on how to get these oak tiles displayed to show them off to their best…so if you have any ideas please let me know.

And if you can think of any creatures who would look good in these little worlds then I will pass on your ideas to Bee.

Handcrafted. The Fish and the Whale by Brett Jordan

During a wood chopping session (I kid you not) B spotted an interesting knot and before I knew it The Fish and the Whale was born.

This was nearly kindling. B chopped one end off a piece of pallet wood and then the other as they had nails in. There was a knot, or a hole where the knot had been. This sparked B’s mind. It looks like a little boat….it could be on the sea. B has loved whales for as long as he can remember so that was a given to get a whale in there.

I love the little lantern and the detail of his little box on the boat.

It is so sad that you can’t touch this piece, it’s texture is so inviting and the characterisation of both the fish and the whale is wonderful. There is a great sense of depth from the bottom of the boat to the sea underneath.

I don’t know if all this shows up on the photo. You’ll have to let us know.
