WOW

Watched a brilliant programme on BBC 4  ‘Carved with Love: The Genius of British Woodwork’ which last night was about the wood carver Grinling Gibbons who in fact was Dutch by birth.  I’ve seen some of his work on other arts programmes but it was great to spend an hour looking at it in detail.  In this age of mass production it was also nice to see that there are wood carvers keeping his traditions alive including David Esterly in USA and Steve Bisco and Shane Raven here in the UK.
