Woodcarving and Sculpture

Woodcarving and Sculpures made for you in Kent

Our carving skills are the best and our portfolio for producing decorative carved items for all periods of furniture is extensive. We specialize in replicating all period and styles of carving and can design and create anything you may desire.

Carving on Furniture can range from the highly decorative, sculptural work often associated with 18th Century furniture to the understated patterns and motifs found on more modern pieces.... To produce any high quality carving takes patience and skill honed over many years. Above all, you have to have a passion to create beautiful carving. At Furniture-Art, we have these skills and passion have the experience to produce any kind of hand carving you will find on European furniture. We also do letter Cutting and signage work as well as exterior sculptural projects. Our portfolio of work is extensive and here are some of our completed works.

Saint Pauls Cathedral Mirror

 

Dimensions: H153cm x W90cm

Style and Influence: We are really proud of this. It is an exact scale copy of a window of the East wing of Sir Christopher Wren's St. Paul's Cathedral. The proportion and ornamentation is exceptional and the headstone at the top and the selection of swags and pigeons at the bottom are in the style of Grinnling Gibbons, the great English wood carver who worked alongside Wren on many projects.

Materials and Finish: Pine with an applied gesso stone effect finish. The plate is leaded with stained glass and aged mirror.

 

Hastings Bracket

We have been involved in several Architectural projects over the years. This was a restoration of a balcony on a sea front property in Hastings. We carved a bracket in period style that could be moulded in iron and used to re -create the orginal style of balcony that was on the property that had disintegrated over the years.

The image on the left is the pattern for the balcony support to be carved bottom frieze taken from our copy of and moulded in cast iron.

"Jason recently made us a gilt Kent-style mirror frame - we were very impressed by his standard of work, which was very high and by his very professional attitude and agreeable personality. He worked hard to get the frame exactly right and we are very pleased with the result." Frances Dobson - London
