Work has begun on the carvings for Bondgate Community Wood in Selby. Each of the sculptures is a development from pieces produced during school and college workshops held earlier in the year (see previous postings). The sculptures are being carved from green oak and each one will incorporate a seating element.
There will be six pieces in total, one to represent each school/college that took part in the workshops.

Today the kiln is having its first firing. I’ve had the kiln since about 2008 but for a variety of reasons it has sat in the corner of 2 studios acting as a very expensive cupboard. Today it is finally being used for what it was built for. The children’s work produced during the workshops connected with the Selby Community Woodland project will be fired this week. Fingers crossed the pieces fire okay and there are no casualties. Once fired they will be returned to the schools.
