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. Just Harvest Mouse woodcarving by Bee

 

It’s Monday. Bee didn’t do any carving at the weekend because you know weekend stuff. Today is a different story. Just Harvest Mouse has arrived to join the other two hand carved oak tiles. I don’t think the photo does this one justice at all as there is so much going on and I don’t know if the camera has picked up his tiny legs that are hanging on to the  stalks. What do you think?IMG_20171030_191436596IMG_20171030_191420179

Handcrafted. The mole woodcarving

 

Two lots of luck two days in a row. Bee has been carving.

Just like yesterday I came in from work and spotted something on the table. So I picked the little oak tile up and immediately noticed the unmistakable image of mole feet, I peered a little closer to see the sweetest face snuffling out of the woodcarving.

This wood is so deep and rich everything comes alive.

What could be next?

Bee has been busy today. I got home from work and he shows me this little gem. A Little Whale is a woodcarving on re-purposed oak. This was essentially a piece an old sideboard that we found thrown out at the back of our old house. Who would thrown such beautiful wood out?

I did mention it was like a magnificent tile so fingers crossed we will get a series.

Handcrafted. The Man of the Woods mask

It’s been quite a while but we haven’t gone away, just like a villain in a two-bit movie or that really annoying person at a party who latches on to you…who am I kidding I don’t go to parties, but I’d probably be that person.

But that doesn’t get me anywhere closer to telling you about this fella who now graces the wall at the top of the stairs.

The Man of the Woods mask started life as your average shop bought plain paper mask but then Bee beat me to and and created him from handmade items and found objects.

I hope you enjoy him as much as we do.

Art: Watercolour by Swarms. Broc

img_20170509_184037885.jpgI’ve stepped back in to this world by accident and inspiration. As I write I’m often inspired by images and so I wanted to attach some images that I created to the words I write.

This watercolour was originally not going to look anything like this, it wasn’t even the subject matter but after a tantrum followed by a little time getting my hand back in tune with the paint it became Broc.

At the edge of every woodland I dream to see this character looking back at me before heavy-footing it back through the undergrowth to chomp on some bluebells. A glimpse is enough.
