Mounted Abstract Carvings were showcased at Craft in the Pen 2017. Each carving is hand carved and is unique in itself and is therefore not repeatable. The open frame that surrounds each carving allows the individual to appreciate the tactile nature of the carving. The carvings have been successfully exhibited at a number of at fairs throughout 2018 and 2019. Along with the framed carvings, 2021 will see the introduction of a limited range of three dimensional abstract carvings which, hopefully, will attract interest equalling that of the mounted carvings.
