Wyvern Bargeboard

Are carving, fretwork or just wooden fascia that are fixed under the roofline of a house or outbuilding.  As at Tudor Court, Rottingdean, they can be highly ornate with carvings of roses and mythical creatures and black or silver grey in colour.  They are nearly always oak because of its durability out of doors.  I am interested in designing and carving these for specific buildings.  On the left is a sample design although it has been adapted in this case as a more flexible decorative panel rather than fitted under a roof.  This panel could be displayed indoors over a fireplace or doorway.

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
