Another piece of wood sculpture, not far from the example in my previous post (which is called “King Hollow”). Apparently, the trees had to be felled so the landowner commissioned Tommy Craggs to do his thing on the remains. (This piece is called “Kingfisher”). Both are within a stone’s throw of the River Nidd on the edge of the town of Knaresborough, North Yorkshire. Some can create,while the rest of us can only try to record.
Another fabulous sculpture!
‘Recycling’ trees like this seems to have become something of a trend – and one of the best trends ever as far as I’m concerned!
I don’t know if the treat them in any way but if not it will be interesting to revisit in a couple of years to see how the things are decaying.
Your last sentence is very good and quote-worthy. This is a lovely sculpture.
Quote away! 😉
I suspect I could create something from plasticine, given time and patience, but to ‘pull’ something out of a solid block….. nah!
Very impressive and so much better than grinding out a stump.
I’m afraid if I had a go I’d end up with a pile of wood chippings – good for garden mulch perhaps.
Hi Stephen, Thanks for directing me to Tommy Craggs work. Its fantastic. And what a great way to preserving the trees. Makes them come alive.
