Chris Doy

Chris Doy

Maker: Chris Doy
Craft: Woodcarving

What inspired this piece: Our former neighbours daughter is called Holly and she is expecting her second child. So I thought I'd carve two holly leaf dishes, one left and one right handed. I had some off cuts from a lime blank that were just right. Holly represents the winter season and a birth represents the new beginning promised by spring.

What inspired this piece: This is a piece inspired by the work of Nick Agar using the techniques I learned from him on several demonstrations and the stencils that you can get. an interesting piece of beech, I wouldn't call it spalted but it definitely has some interesting colour and markings, bought from a shop near me. I enjoy woodturning and colouring.

TVR Treen

Maker: Trevor Dakin
Craft: Woodturning

What inspired this piece: When I holidayed in Crete I saw in every gift shop beautiful turned pieces made from olive wood. On the last day our tour guide presented me with a piece of an olive branch from her log burner wood pile. I made this beautiful dried flower vase from it.
