This blog is continued with older entries on my website's 'Latest News' page, where you can see projects and images going back to February 2009.

There's loads of images of my carvings and projects on the website, going right back to when I first started out carving. There are also, of course, a few stories. To see them or to return to the website, please click on this link

Bristol Festival of Stone, 31st May to the 9th June 2013

I will be doing some carving in Bath limestone at this festival of stonecarving, which is to be held on the harbourside in Bristol.

Although I'm more often covered in wood chippings, I've always enjoyed stone carving and love having the opportunity to get the stoneworking tools out. It was great to have the chance recently as part of Triodos bank's 'Cornerstone' project

There will be 49 other stone carvers in a carving competition, as well as guest carvers and music. I'm entered in the 4 day carve, from the 5th to the 8th of June. It'll  be great seeing a few old friends and having a look at the other work being produced! Now I just need to work out what to produce...

My brother Duncan Park will also be carving in the competition. He's a skilled stonecarver based in Dorset.
