Martin Turner - Woodcarver & Sculptor
Commissioned as a gift to celebrate a 30th Wedding Anniversary, the family is raising their glasses to celebrate the occasion. The sculpture opens to reveal two large freshwater pearls - 30 years is a pearl anniversary.
Walnut with ebony and holly veneers; freshwater pearls.
In the possession of
the owners, London, UK.
A gift from a husband to his wife to celebrate her ordination as a priest. This lady enjoys vegetable gardening so I have carved, as one piece, a cornucopia from which vegetables are toppling. All the vegetables have names that begin with P or S - the lady’s initials. Also tumbling out is a rock - her husband’s name is Peter - a Christian allusion as are the two fish. Built into the design are other references to special interests in their lives.
Limewood and purpleheart.
In the possession of the
owner, Dorset, UK.
Too often today, a loving relationship - so beautiful and full of promise, ends with two people picking over the bones of whose fault it was and who gets what...
A life-sized piece in limewood on a faux marble pedestal.
