Today I went to the Open Studio of a very very talented local woodcarver, Jenny Cook, who is in one of the groups I belong to.
These 2 are details of one I would have dearly loved to have bought - but can't afford :(
And below is the whole piece.
It brings back vivid memories of Grand Harbour, Valletta, Malta. I lived in Malta in my teens and Grand Harbour holds special memories - it's a spectacular harbour with fortifications by the Knights of St John from 16C
There were also a lovely series of local cottages ....
gorgeous little cupboards, painted beautifully ....
flowers ..... I nearly bought one that I really couldn't afford but was saved from myself when someone else bought it :>( ......
The work is mainly made from reclaimed wood, carved and painted.
Jenny's studio is a converted stable in the garden of her cottage and I am very very deeply seriously envious! it looks out onto beautiful cottage garden flowers and is light and spacious and far far tidier than I could ever manage!
