Below you will see some work that I have been commissioned to carve. I have selected pieces for each category of work such as Lovespoons and In-the-Round carvings. Please understand that they have been commissioned and are included to show the variety and range of work that I undertake and I would appreciate it if these designs are appreciated for their aesthectic appeal and, therefore, are not copied.
In this section you will see a wide variety of my designs. I have been fortunate in having some very prestigious commissions. The spoon on the left was made to commission for Dr. Rowan Williams' enthronement as Archbishop of Canterbury. The spoon with the crest was commissioned for a Councillor who had achieved 30 years service to his Council. The end one was commissioned by Norman Stevens, an American private Collector of contemporary spoons. I met him in Hartford, Conneticutt and he commissioned Mother Goose as he is also a Collector of chilren's memorabilia. Norman has now published a book of some of his Collection (entitled 'A Gathering of Spoons') and Mother Goose appears in that.
The middle spoon in this section was commissioned and presented to Rhodri Morgan when he was First Minister for Wales. There is a lot of detail in this relatively small spoon.
The boxed spoon was commissioned and presented to Prince Edward for Lady Louise.
The first two on this row were commissioned by the families of Harry Dennis and Lyn Thomas - two good friends and students - as a surprise 'special birthday' gift for each of them.
All my commissioned work is difficult to 'hand-over' when it is finished as I put so much of myself into them, but, I paricularly found it hard to part with
The size of the dragon is 48" x 30" x 15" and was commissioned by Anthony Christopher of Pen-y-Cae Inn, Pen-y-Cae, Swansea Valley.
The size of the grapes was 18" x 13" x 12" and the Honours Board "approx. 46" x 38" x 3.5".
The pineapple on the ring was approx. 1.5" in height.
