Waymarkers  

Waymarkers can mark a route, transition or special place.  Sometimes I create pieces to draw attention to aspects of a habitat in a public park; sometimes the references are more personal to myself or a commissioner; sometimes I am asked to design the carving using references that are particular to a person who has died.  The Waymarkers are always symbolic and organic in style. They are created using a variety of tool marks to make tactile textures and patterns.  1/3 of their length is in the ground.  They donít need to be cemented in, but can be for security.  They take 3-4 weeks to carve and are in green oak with Danish oil as the final finish.  They need to be re-oiled only periodically once installed.

Prices are between £1,500 Ė 2,000 for commissions

 


This Waymarker refers to my experiences of Sussex landscape and land management.  The black bryony is prevalent all round where I live, garden and walk every day.  I was introduced to white bryony on the Downs near Sompting where a group of friends meet, walk and sing traditional songs
