Mushrooms en Cloche


Mushrooms carved from caribou and moose antler and mounted in a glass and wood cloche.
Total height is 7.5” high. The base has been painted a dark walnut brown.


A cluster of five mushrooms carved from reindeer and moose  antler and mounted in a glass and wood cloche.  My inner science geek (I’m a former biologist) finds cloches especially appealing.  The sight of them evokes in me the smell of mothballs and the sound of creaky wooden floors in poorly lit, out of the way natural history museums.
I expect to look up from the cloches to see strange things preserved in murky bottles of formaldehyde and endless shallow drawers of meticulously labeled samples of plants and bones and bird wings and insects.
Total height 7.5”. The wooden base has been painted dark walnut brown.
I have been carving a lot of mushrooms lately.  I find them to be both quirky and beautiful at the same time. I enjoy adding the gill detail on the underside of the mushroom cap.  It’s like a little secret.  You have to look closely or pick it up to see it, but it makes the piece that much more interesting.   These mushrooms are the result of blending traditional materials with modern carving techniques in an exploration of the beauty of the natural world.
I design and carve all of my sculpture in my studio/ workshop located in Brackley Beach.
I use antler, which is naturally shed and regrown by the animal each year. Once carved, each piece is sanded and buffed to  highly polished finish. Each sculpture is signed.
