About Elaine

I recently decided  that it was time to  dedicate some time to "me" and take up hobbies and interests that I had not previously had time for. I have always enjoyed the countryside and willow sculpture was something that I had always wanted to try.

The willow is sourced from a traditional willow grower on the somerset levels.

The larger sculptures are built around a simple metal frame which gives a good solid stand to secure into the ground. Each piece is unique and takes  several days/weeks to make, depending on size. All work is treated with wood preservative which should ensure the sculptures remain in good order for many years. I would recommend spraying sculptures once a year with either Linseed Oil or a basic wood preservative which can be purchased in most DIY shops.

We have been busy over the past 12 months demonstrating at local shows including, Taunton Flower Show, Sherborne Castle Country Fair, Melplash Show, Wells Garden Festival and enjoyed demonstrating and exhibiting at Somerset Arts Open Studios from 2 weeks during October. I was also pleased to receive a commission from Alan Titchmarsh and his team for a sculpture to feature in the ITV show "Love Your Garden".

I have had a lot of requests for workshops and hope to start these next year. I have enjoyed working with local school children helping them create sculptures for their school and to help them create small sculptures for their own gardens.

The sculptures make a lovely addition to any garden and look good all year round. They can also be covered in lights to make a spectacular Christmas display.

I have been thrilled by the positive comments I have received about the sculptures and love to see the reaction of people when they see them.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you are interested in any of my work or have a specific request as I am always pleased to take on a new challenge!

Thanks to my husband who is always supportive, welding the frames and transporting my creations around.

Sculptures are also available to hire for Weddings, Christmas, Corporate Events etc.
