A tree ‘wrap’ I am currently working on. The ‘wrap’ is approximately one metre by two metres and sculpted out of corrugated cardboard. I am intending to fix it to a net backing (to prevent it falling apart – it’s a bit delicate!) before wrapping it around a suitable tree. Ideally, it would be fabricated in metal, but a lack of funding means this is not possible at the moment.
Latest addition to there Modern-Day Green man series – made from a discarded Guinness can. Note the ring-pull eyes!
Further exploration into bringing ancient forms and symbols into a modern setting – the Green Man, ancient symbol of fertility, fabricated out of an old coke can and ‘metalised’ cardboard. The concepts are relevant to every society, ancient or modern and, as such, I am attempting to bring them up-to-date.
Completed Green Man carving with all faces intertwined. During the making, it became apparent that it might serve as a tea light holder – a welcome addition to any Pagan altar?
Two sides completed in the wood carving project – the block is a 75mm cube of limewood and has been carved with a mixture of hand tools and power tools. It is still a bit rough but getting there.
Initial sketch made of a ‘Green Man’ (also known as ‘Jack ‘o’ Lantern’) probably to be used on a carved wood structure to house tealights. The design uses elements from sketches I made of wooden stumps, swirls and patterns from ancient stone carvings and some traditional carved stones found on many old churches.
