Here’s a new project in progress…a hand carved inscription on an old wooden stool. Lettering designed with double pencils on paper and written quickly and arranged in a  simple block layout. It is such a joy to work in wood. The crisp crunch of a sharp chisel cutting through the grain a most satisfyimg sound.



“Truth is ever to be found in Simplicity” ( not in the multiplicity and confusion of things ) … Isaac Newton

I love the simple utilitarian nature of the stool. It just came to hand as a pleasing idea to add some calligraphy to it.
