Phoenix Rising from the Flames

I see my self as wearing several woodcarving hats:

As a carver I have been woodcarving since 1975, originally studying under a master woodcarver: the late Gino Masero, and am an associate member of the Master Carvers Association.
My work is mainly commissioned and ranges from architectural to figure carving; including furniture, lettering, bedheads, fireplaces, mythical and abstract sculpture.

As a teacher I have been running woodcarving classes in England for many years. I am on the faculty at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Maine, USA where I teach regular carving courses.

As a writer I am the author of a number of books on woodcarving. A complete list can be seen on my website.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 62 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
