As well as this blog, I also have a website with lots more images of my work as well as a few more stories.
If you like woodcarvings, you'll want to have a look.

'Bridget's Smile'- a sculptural bench by Sue Darlison

sue darlison

Sue Darlison is a bespoke furniture maker, tutor and exhibition organiser based in Bristol. Today, I helped to take over a bench that she has recently made. It is now installed at 'The Limes', a local centre for people with dementia, and was commissioned by someone in memory of his wife Bridget who attended the centre.


The bench is made from Cedar of Lebanon and Oak. The shape was inspired by Bridget's smile, which seems a particularly lovely way to be remembered. In the New Year I have been asked to carve the words 'Bridget's Smile' onto it and then it will stay in the garden of the centre, for visitors and clients to enjoy.
