This woodcarving was a present for my daughter Sara’s 40th birthday. It is carved out of Yew, from a tree which was in our garden and had to be cut down when we built our house over 30 years ago. I got 4 large pieces of Yew from the trunk, promising myself that I would carve something for each of my 3 children in due course This means however I have a “spare piece of Yew” if anyone is interested in commissioning me. I have spent something like 100 hours on producing this latest work. I trust therefore anyone interested will understand if I say the price for a commission from this last piece of Yew would be £1000
