Maker: Chris Doy
Craft: Woodcarving

What inspired this piece: It was the upcoming 1st birthday of our neighbours first grandchild. They had pet house rabbits, which seemed an appropriate theme for a carving. I was inspired by Disneys Alice in Wonderland white rabbit as an appropriate model. The watch base has the child's name, the day and date window and the hands set at the time of his birth. The weights show his birth weight. It is mounted on a reclaimed slate. It was carved from Lime and sealed with Teak Oil and Black Bison Beeswax polish.

Chris does not currently have any social media links to share.

Craft: Pyrography

What inspired this piece: My wooden cheeseboard is all about celebrating love and life's joys. Inspired by a groom's love for tractors and a bride's passion for horses, it's a heartfelt tribute and a reminder of their special day.
