Wood Sculpture 

ANDREW BEGAN WORKING AS A WOOD TURNER; HE HAD ALWAYS HAD A SCULPTURE EDGE TO HIS WORK AND HAS SUCCESSFULLY PRODUCED AND SOLD WORK. 
AFTER WORKING WITH A WORLD RENOWNED FRENCH SCULPTOR, ANDREW TOOK HIS WORK TO THE NEXT LEVEL AND BEGAN SCULPTING. 
THE CAREFULLY CHOSEN TIMBERS ARE SELECTED FOR THEIR COLOURATION, NATURAL FLAWS AND PATTERNATION, THIS TAKES MORE TIME TO SOURCE BUT THE RESULTS ARE WORTH THE EXTRA EFFORT. 
THE PIECES ALL CREATE THEMSELVES; ANDREW NEVER REALLY KNOWS EXACTLY HOW A PIECE WILL TURN OUT. HE BEGINS WITH A BASIC SHAPE AND THEN FOLLOWS THE WOODS OWN CONTOURS AND DESIGNS TO HIGHLIGHT THE NATURAL FEATURES WITHIN THE WOOD, HE USES A COMBINATION OF STAINING AND BURNING TO DARKEN AND BLACKEN SOME OF THE PIECES. 
ANDREWS WORK CAN BE FOUND IN PRIVATE COLLECTIONS THROUGHOUT THE UK, EUROPE, AUSTRALIA, JAPAN, AND AMERICA.
