The latest sculptures by Paul Sivell.
The latest sculptures by Paul Sivell.
Paul is busy working away at a new sculpture on the Newport Road, Cowes. The tree is a magnificent 120 year old Oak and will become a landmark for a town that was once world famous for its boat building. So far this has taken Paul three weeks of intensive carving but we hope to finish this week. If you are on the Isle of Wight, why not pop along and watch Paul carving. Photos to follow
Paul Sivell has been awarded a prestigious contract to carve one of the oldest trees on the Isle of Wight in Newport Road, Cowes. Debbie is about to pop down there this afternoon to take a few photographs of Paul carving this beautiful old tree. Watch this space for more information.
If you are thinking of having a tree carved, a bespoke bench made for you or a piece of objet d’art for your house or garden Paul is available for commissions.
Just contact Debbie via the website or give her a call on 01983 854351 for a chat. Happy New Year.
Paul Sivell will be carving at this year’s SWEETCORN FAYRE AT ARRETON BARNS, ARRETON, ISLE OF WIGHT, this Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 September 2014. Why not come along and see Paul carving amongst many other things, a Pelican which will be auctioned to the highest bidder in aid of Beaulie House in Newport.
Look forward to seeing you there!
Meet our Redwood Fox. He will be on sale for £350.00 at Fort Victoria,Yarmouth, Isle of Wight, where Paul is carving on 21 August. He will also be carving at Westonbirt Arboretum on 23 and 24 August and then at the beautiful Wolverton Manor back on the Isle of Wight on 30/31 August. The very talented Glenn Martin, better know on Facebook as Mushyman, will be collaborating on a couple of pieces with Paul which is very exciting. Two talented people working together.
We are also trying to raise funding for a wonderful tree carving in Parkhurst Forest. Yvonne Yelland is campaigning this worthy cause to save a bit of history for future generations. Paul has substantially dropped his fees and we hope to get donations as well.
Paul Sivell finished his latest commission yesterday, 23 July 2014, of an owl in Knellar Gardens, Richmond Upon Thames. Why not go along and have a look?
Paul will be at many shows over the rest of the summer, the first being Fort Victoria in Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight on 21 August, a great day out for all the family. He will then be at Westonbirt Arboretum on 23/24/25 August and the beautiful Wolverton Manor on the Isle of Wight on 30 and 31st August.
Hope to see you there. Glenn Martin, the very talented recycling sculptor will be working with Paul at Wolverton Manor on a couple of combined pieces so definitely worth a visit.
Paul Sivell is delighted to announce that he is working with the very talented Glenn Martin (Mushyman on Facebook) on some new pieces. Their first collaboration is entitled ‘Dryad.’ Paul and Glenn hope to work together on many other pieces.
Dryad was created by Paul carving the figure from recycled Lawson Cypress. Glenn then worked on the remainder – again all with recycled pieces of copper and worn beach glass.
As Glenn said; ‘There was no fixed design, as I needed to get a feel of how to work with the curves in the figure and therefore an essence of how Paul works. The copper leaves and flower petals were made from an old immersion tank and the vines made from heavy gauge copper wire. Rather than polish up all the copper, I have left the finish as I have found it all adds to the final effect. I am looking forward to working on a second piece with Paul, the designs are all ready to go!
Paul has been busy with lots of new carving commissions and we have also been building an audience on our new Facebook page (Paul Sivell). Its great to see lots of new followers wait eagerly to see his new work. Paul will be carving at many shows across the Isle of Wight and beyond this summer. Watch this space for more details.
