Public Art Gallery
John Adamson

Tree Sculptor

My Public Art is an extension of my smaller carvings.   I use the form of the wood and my knowledge of the human form to produce similar carvings, only with a chainsaw rather than chisels and gouges.   There are some exceptions to this when the wood or the commissioner wants a different sort of carving.   These are of course made to order and already in position in parks etc.    If you have tree or log that you wished to be carved in a similar manner, an enquiry about a commission would be welcome.   The prices are a probable cost for the work if undertaken today and to this I would need to add travel expenses
